Our Vision & Mission
Vision: racially just society committed to wellbeing and relationship.
Mission: provide antiracism dialogue experiences that build community and the personal capacity to eliminate racism and create a just society.
ACT was started in 2004 by Okogyeamon (Herbert Perkins), Ph.D., MDiv, retired college educator, and the late Margery Otto, a lawyer. Their work is strongly influenced by Joe Feagin, whose writings include The White Racial Frame. Perkins uses his ancestral name, Okogyeamon, given to him in Ghana. (It means “He who awakens a village in danger.”) Otto and Okogyeamon together trained some 60 skilled facilitators to help continue and expand this important work.
