Welcome and thank you for visiting Elm City-UROC (Undoing Racism Organizing Collective).  We are a multiracial, anti-racist collective of organizers and educators building a movement for social change in and around New Haven, Connecticut.  Working together we focus on what racism is, where it comes from, how it functions, why it is persists, and what we can do to dismantle it and build just and equitable communities.

Thank you to all the people who attended the July 2018 workshop. Over 50 participants, volunteers, alumni and trainers!  And all those who just attended the September 2018 workshop.  Over 40 participants, volunteers, alumni and trainers!

We are continuing to organize workshops as well as educational and community building activities for 2018.  Please visit this site for updates and information.
