Dear friends and supporters,

After much consideration, we are changing our name from MASS SLAVERY APOLOGY to RACIAL JUSTICE RISING. This change has been a long time coming!

We will continue to use Mass Slavery Apology as the name of the project that started our work - our statement of apology for slavery and commitment to restorative action.  

~ In solidarity ~

Your friends at Racial Justice Rising



is a small racial justice group based in Franklin County, Massachusetts.


Our main projects at present involve sharing information with others, especially whites, about racism and white privilege. These include:


       ~ Our monthly event series. All programs are free and open to the public.


ELECTRONIC OUTREACH local, regional, national, international:

       ~ Once or twice monthly we send out an email newsletter sharing antiracism events, articles, and links

       ~ This website

       ~ Facebook page


NETWORKING, COLLABORATION, MOVEMENT BUILDING:  Our activities strive to bring individuals and groups who are new to antiracism into the movement, to develop relationships with others who are already committed, and to build collaborations with other racial justice groups and antiracist individuals locally, regionally, and nationally.


We now have a YouTube page!

Check it out! Videos of some of our programs, and more...


We hope you will join us at our upcoming events!
