Since it’s founding in 2000, ERACCE has been a growing resource for Southwest Michigan institutions interested in building authentic, just, and accountable multicultural diversity. We have partnered with hundreds of institutions to offer organizing, training, consulting, and technical assistance around identifying and dismantling systemic racism.
On the 2nd Monday of each month at 525 E. Kalamazoo Ave. from 6:30-8:30pm., ERACCE hosts a regional racial identity caucus. Open to anyone who has participated in a 2.5-day Understanding & Analyzing Systemic Racism workshop or 4-day Team Training. Join us from 5:30-6:30 to learn caucus facilitation skills.

Welcome to ERACCE’s first blog post. This blog will be a place for us to share our analysis of current issues pertaining to systemic racism and the antiracism movement. We will apply an antiracist lens to understanding what is going on in Southwest Michigan and around the nation as well. We will follow current events and reach back into history to better understand how racism and institutional oppression manifests today and in our everyday lives.
Understanding history is vital to understanding why, for example, protests against police violence are occurring today. Historical events and present-day lived experiences are not often easy to disentangle.
