Coalition of Anti-Racist Whites (CARW)
CARW educates, organizes, and mobilizes white people to show up powerfully for racial justice and collective liberation.
Our work continues to take place in deep partnership with local organizers of BIPOC-led movements, and centers on educating and engaging white folks in struggles against racism and oppression. CARW is guided by our Points of Unity, which are intended as catalyzers of conversation, agitation, and liberation.
Our current structure includes the following:
Solidarity groups, which hold direct relationships and organize with BIPOC-led movements and organizations. These include Migrant Justice, Anti-Imperialism, Climate Justice, and a newly forming Abolition Solidarity Group. We are also still in close relationship with the Duwamish Solidarity group, which has recently transitioned out of CARW to become a multi-racial group.
Leadership teams, which serve key roles within the organization. These include Education, Fundshifting, and Member Engagement (MEComm).
Spokescouncil, which is our leadership and decision-making body and is made up of representatives from each of the solidarity groups and leadership teams.
And a large membership base of thousands of people who receive CARW communications and may participate in general actions and member meetings. As CARW members develop in their leadership and organizing skills, they have the option to move through increasing levels of responsibility and challenge from newcomer to leader, over time.
