8/24/20 – WFTDA Anti-Racism Update

Dear Roller Derby Community,

WFTDA Staff worked with members of our Diversity and Inclusion Committee and Accountability Partners this weekend to review applications for The Anti-Racism Team Project (The ART Project), WFTDA’s community-driven organizational review process centering our BIPOC community members.

The WFTDA is grateful to have received over 70 applications for ART Project members, and we thank those of you who stepped forward to nominate or apply.  Although the review team hoped to announce selections by August 29, we believe the number of applicants requires a deeper review and are now aiming for early September to finalize the panel.

Beginning in September 2020, WFTDA Leadership will shift to a monthly reporting process for our Anti-Racism initiatives.
