Statement from CAAR co-chair, Margie Andreason
As co-chair of CAAR, I want to share just a couple reflections. First, that I am honored to have been part of this great organization for the past four years. A special shout out to Boa Lee who was the person who encouraged me to provide leadership for CAAR in the first place. It truly has been a great learning experience – from organizing campaigns to grant-writing to putting on amazing community events. I’m proud of my contributions to shift CAAR’s work to be more proactive and I have learned so much from fellow organizers. Seriously, a HUGE THANK YOU from me to all the volunteers who’ve been active with CAAR past and present. You are all awesome and amazing people and we could not have done this without you!
I hope you will join CAAR for its final general membership hangout next month. Details below:

Even though CAAR will be dissolving, we all know the work around racial justice and media justice is long from being done. There’s great organizations still doing amazing work that I hope you’ll give your support and energy to.
Love and respect to you all,
Community Action Against Racism
