WRC Statement on Racism and the Global Movement for Change

To be a feminist, you must be anti-racist. Liberation for only some, is not liberation.

The events of the past few weeks following the murder of George Floyd by four Minneapolis police officers have sparked an unprecedented global uprising against racism and collective demand to defund the police and fund our communities.

At WRC, we are committed to feminism and anti-racism being at the heart of everything we do.
