WHO IS TASC
Take A Stand Committee is a community, from the commnity, dedicated to making the community safe for our children. We work locally to dismantle belief systems, social structures and institutional practices that oppress women and children and dehumanize men themselves. We look to the violence against the young members of our community movement to keep the reality of the problem and the vision of the solution before us. We believe that all forms of oppression are interconnected. Social justice work in the areas of race, class, gender, age and sexual orientation are all critical to ending violence against our youth.
We have partnered with various other outreach groups, churches and local successful businessman, to formulate positive, realistic concepts. For example, a “Real Allies Breakfast”, which we envision a non-judgmental open forum, a safe, friendly environment in which a small group of individuals can openly talk about the issue of this senseless violence and how we, as leaders, as parents and as human beings, could do our part” to promote healthy living , awareness within a safe family environment.
“Hope isn’t about believing we can change things. Hope is about believing what we do matters.”
