One of the most important discoveries we have made since we started Act Now with RU, is that there is a great deal of learning, feeling and processing involved in spiritual activism. Many of us, whether we identify as racialized "white" or "black", received a false education that sanitized U.S. history. In learning about racism and oppression, we have needed to give ourselves the grace to feel and witness a wide range of feelings, including anger, sadness, grief, and more. We are committed to giving each other non-judgement, compassion and loving presence.
Understanding the change begins with awareness, is fueled by desire, and made possible through knowledge, ability and reinforcement, ACT NOW with RU, provides opportunities in all of these spaces.
