The mission of the WRJI is to actively promote racial justice in our national culture and practice, as well as the wider world community, advancing inclusion and eliminating both institutional and internalized racism. We provide resources to inform and promote the work, and amplify the work of Wellesley Alums of Color to further their impact.
We seek to:
EDUCATE ourselves and the Wellesley network through courageous dialogue and informative resources;
AMPLIFY the voices of those who are working to end racism;
ACTIVATE the Wellesley network to bring about equity in their families, communities, and institutions;
TRANSFORM ourselves and our world.
We began as a small group of alums dissatisfied with "business-as-usual" at Reunion 2017, in a time of true racial crisis and awakening
Our leadership is passionate about doing the work ourselves - with one another, in our families and communities, at work and in our own hearts. All volunteers, our members roll on and off and take on pieces of work as their lives permit, supported by active volunteers and former LC members.
Always developing, our activities mirror the interests of Wellesley Alums and the volunteer leadership prepared to take them on!
