As many of you know, NOT IN OUR TOWN PRINCETON is a multi-racial, multi-faith group of individuals who stand together for racial justice and inclusive communities. Our focus is to promote the equitable treatment of all, and to uncover and confront white supremacy — a system which manipulates and pits all races and ethnicities against each other.

Our goal is to identify and expose the political, economic, and cultural systems which have enabled white supremacy to flourish, and to create new structures and policies which will ensure equity and inclusion for all. In our commitment to uncovering the blight of white supremacy on our humanity, we take responsibility to address it and eliminate it in all its forms through intentional action, starting with ourselves and our communities.

Our next general meeting, one in a long monthly series entitled “Continuing Conversations on Race & White Privilege” – is slated to take place in the Community Room of the Princeton Public Library (65 Witherspoon St, Princeton, NJ 08542) at 7pm on Monday, April 2nd. (These meetings typically take place on the first Monday of every month.)

In Crowns, a play written and directed by Regina Taylor at McCarter Theater, women weave faith and fashion together into an inspirational coming-of-age celebration of resilient, triumphant African American women, and their church hats.  Join us for Continuing Conversations to hear firsthand about the powerful journeys of African American women in our community, view their crowns and reflect on our own journeys. Please save the date (that’s Monday, April 2nd, 7pm), and think about who you might want to bring with you… these meetings are open to anyone who is interested in furthering the cause of racial justice.
