Central to MASC’s mission is to advocate on behalf of the multiracial community. Today we introduce four position statements that have been thoughtfully crafted to promote practical and positive change for multiracial people.
Learn more about the initiatives
To help you learn more about these initiatives and to engage in dialog with MASC about them we have created The Multiracial Advocate blog site. Various dimensions of these initiatives will be explored by contributing writers from MASC and other thought leaders. So be sure to follow this blog and check-in from time-to-time to stay on top of how this movement develops.
Show your support
Ready to join this movement? We have created the Multiracial National Advocacy Surveywhere you can show your support for each of these issues, all together or individually, and add your name to a growing list of supporters. At the conclusion of the survey you will receive a special badge that you can carry with you to remind yourself of these initiatives and share with friends, family, and all acquaintances.
This is just the beginning of a movement. MASC believes in making practical positive change for the multiracial community. We need YOU and YOUR support to really make this happen so continue to follow us, continue your support, and continue to share with those you know.
Have a Happy and Safe Labor Day!
