Welcome! We're back and more energized than ever.
The Activated People is searching for members (otherwise known as The People) who are eager to make a difference. The People are not bystanders, but active participants in the struggle against systemic racism. TAP leadership appreciates the role partisan politics play in our ability to advance the mission of racial justice, but also cherishes our ability to think and operate freely and independently; and strongly adheres to the philosophy that ‘we have no permanent friends, only permanent interests.’ As a result, we will always prioritize the needs and well-being of the Black community over partisan politics, and demand our members to do the same. We will shape our own agendas for the Black community independently of any political party, and in concert with members of the Black community.
While we welcome the participation, support, and membership of people of all races, we believe the mission for racial justice for Black Americans is best served when we empower and prioritize the thoughts and opinions of that community. Therefore, as a member of TAP, it is understood that it is encouraged to hold space and deference to Black members of TAP for leadership roles.
