The work of the Middletown Racial Justice Coalition (MRJC) is at the intersection of four key pillars: Education, Building Community Power, Community Organizing & Advocacy, and Systems Disruption & Abolition.
We provide funding and support for local youth organizing efforts around the issues most important to them. We also run an annual summer youth enrichment program.
Community Organizing & Advocacy
We are organizing against a proposed charter school in the city that would take significant funding from our public schools. We are also partnering with local and state housing activists to promote equitable access to affordable housing and homeownership opportunities. Stay tuned for updates on how to get involved!
Building Community Power
We host community events centering the healing and joy of our city's Black and Brown residents. We also actively support and sponsor events led by community partners.
Systems Disruption & Abolition
We support statewide policy advocacy campaigns that address racial inequity and represent racial equity concerns at a variety of local and state committees, task forces, public meetings, and other venues for policy and systems change.
