Meet the Team

We are dedicated to fighting against racism by offering counter narratives to the racist propaganda of the day and training a new generation of youth in anti-racism ideology and strategies. CART is also dedicated to initiating conversations on racism, oppression, and marginalization while providing opportunities for affected people to heal from the ravages of historical and inter-generational trauma that racism causes.
