Transforming community

Join us in improving race relationships in North Whatcom County through honest and respectful dialogue that promotes inclusiveness and values diversity.
Our Mission

Listening and learning about systemic racial injustice

Racial Unity Now (RUN) strives to create racial understanding both now and in the future. With a focus on North Whatcom County, we are listening and learning about systemic racial injustice and will propose actions to overcome such patterns and behavior. This begins with searching out our personal prejudices and leads to “acting justly, loving mercy, and walking humbly with our God.” While rooted in Christian beliefs, we will include voices from other faith traditions, given our shared values. Together we will resolve to advance racial equality, respect, and love in our diverse community.
