We believe…

Racism exists when one ethnic group or historical collectivity dominates, excludes, or seeks to eliminate another on the basis of differences that it believes are hereditary and unalterable.George M. Fredrickson, Racism: A Short History

We, the Summit Against Racism, believe that racism is a tool of white supremacy that operates on individual, interpersonal, institutional, and structural levels.

Ignorance, prejudice, bigotry, and discrimination are all aspects of racism.

Racism was used as a means to commit genocide against indigenous populations and to enslave Africans for economic gain.

Whiteness was created and is maintained, through laws and policies that advantage white people and negatively affect non-white people.

The ideology of white supremacy has shaped cultural behaviors and beliefs which produce cumulative and chronic adverse harm for non-white people.

Because it is passed on through our culture, racism shows up in personal interactions, even among those who are well-intentioned, often without awareness.

Racism damages relationships and causes psychological harm to both the oppressors and the oppressed.

The Summit Against Racism organizes from a western-oriented position and acknowledges the shifting nature of white supremacy worldwide.
