Race Relations and Minorities News

USARiseUp.com is proud to host online Race Relations Forums. We are committed to providing a “gathering place” where many voices can participate in an ongoing conversation about race relations in the United States and around the globe.

Purpose and Objectives

The purpose of these online forums is to enable many more people to engage in the dialogue than could otherwise participate in a small community gathering. This online discussion can be a great addition to small group meetings that might be occurring in communities all over the country.

With these forums, we hope to achieve the following objectives:

  • Promote a better understanding of issues around race and ethnicity across the country;
  • Create a sense of community that we are “all in this together.”
  • Identify constructive strategies that are working to increase understanding and improvement; and
  • Stimulate a level of commitment needed to take actions to make things better where you live.

How the Forums Work

Various issues and subjects will be posted on a regular basis for comment. Please submit questions and issues you would like to be posted for discussion. A summary of the discussion with any pertinent findings will be provided and posted on line for visitors to access, download and distribute as they deem valuable.

To participate, just Sign In and get started.
