aprilaction-mariaALIGN believes racial justice is an integral part of the fight for economic justice. Racism – compounded by related systems of oppression, such as classism, sexism, ableism, heterosexism, and xenophobia – exclude entire segments of society from economic prosperity. We aim to address racial inequality consciously and explicitly in our work to ensure that communities of color are empowered in a just economy. ALIGN defines racial justice as the systematic fair treatment of people of all races resulting in equitable opportunities and outcomes for all.
