All Of Us
All Of Us, a Black-led grassroots organization, was founded in the City of Schenectady on February 15, 2020. It arrived on the precipice of a global pandemic and a racial justice uprising! The organization’s goals and principles were developed while working alongside communities demanding equity, justice, freedom, and liberation.
Our Mission is to support and strengthen marginalized communities in the fight for Black Liberation and an end to all forms of racism, oppression and exploitation; uniting people across socially created divisions.
Our Vision is to imagine, create, and utilize systems of equity and justice in our communities that are not based in punishment, policing and the carceral state.
Our Key Organizational Value is T.R.U.E.
Transformation takes Reimagining how we organize ourselves in society, Uniting across our differences, and bringing Equity to our community.
We create space that unites people across intentional divisions such as but not limited to race, gender, sexual orientation, religion, language, abilities, country of origin, geographic region, economic status, and all of the intersections that exist.
All Of Us works in partnership and coalition with other community groups and organizations because no one group or organization can address all of the issues our communities face every day. We are committed to a strategy that prioritizes the voices of the marginalized in localities directly in our communities across the Greater Capital Region of New York and behind the wall in New York State jails and prisons.
It’s not one of us. It’s ALL of us.
