Our Facebook group can be found at www.facebook.com/groups/casteactionalliance.
Our focus is on educating ourselves and others related to historical and contemporary results of enslavement of Black people in America since 1619. The legacy of the American Caste System has particularly excluded African Americans from fair access to wealth-building and economic-enhancing systems such as education, home ownership and employment.
Our goals are as follows:
- To honor our specific enslaved ancestors and their allies with strategically installed memorial plaques.
- To provide educational scholarships to black youth.
- To widely distribute the book, Caste, by Isabel Wilkerson (2020), to teachers, libraries, school administrators, and to local organizations and individuals in the fields of education, law enforcement, government, and other positions of power and influence in our respective communities and beyond.
