For the Roller Derby Community
The Women’s Flat Track Derby Association is committed to becoming an actively anti-racist organization. We realize that this does not happen overnight and it takes an active effort from all of us to dismantle racism in our community.
In an effort to be fully transparent with the community, we will be posting regular updates on what we are doing as an organization so that we are held accountable in the efforts of rebuilding our organization into one that truly represents our community values.
And with that in mind, we wanted to create this page as a resource for leagues to come to for support and guidance. We will be updating this page frequently with information and tools you can take back to your leagues to help make active and conscious efforts to combat racism.
We welcome your thoughts and suggestions, which can be submitted here.
