EM | Power is committed to the eradication of racism wherever it exists. Through grassroots efforts, we are working to create awareness, affect change, and raise money to support existing organizations committed to fighting racism. We focus on the elimination of racist practices within seven areas of institutional influence: Religion, Family, Education, Government, Media, Arts, and Business.
One of the ways that we create awareness is through our yard signs (Higher Calling Signs). Our messages challenge people to confront systematic racism and oppression through several actionable behaviors. These actions are suggested behaviors that a person can do within their own concentric circle. We suggest that people value diversity, actively listen, oppose racism, unify for the common good, and demand equal treatment for all, especially those who have been impacted by the effects of institutional racism.
We encourage people to rise to a higher level of personal responsibility by engaging in critical conversations stimulating change. It is our goal to cut off the tentacles of racism that have long been embedded in our society’s fiber. People are often unsure what they can do to help. Our signs create awareness, stimulate conversations, and provide suggestions for actions that can make a difference.
Overcoming 400 years of unfair treatment may be difficult but not impossible. However, it must begin today and it must begin with you. Join the fight to end racism. Become a wounded healer.
