Allies for Black Lives is a group created for the purpose of elevating the conversation about racial discrimination; identifying, educating and highlighting how racism still exists in our society today; and taking meaningful actions to dismantle systemic racism.  We believe that white privilege is an institutional ideology that is as erosive as white supremacy at a more subtle level.  We are part of a larger movement of people from around the globe who are working together tirelessly to disrupt the racist belief systems, both subtle and overt, that exist in our world today.
