Neighbors for Racial Justice (N4RJ) is a group of Oakland neighbors who, since 2013, have been committed to racial equity and justice in our neighborhoods and city. We seek to be civic change agents, and to examine and act to address our own racism, anti-blackness, and white supremacy. We are supported by a women-led Black Advisory Council.
We originally came together to respond to egregious racist profiling on listservs - such as Nextdoor, and to educate folks throughout Oakland about racist profiling, which is still one of our top priorities.
