Race. Conversation. Honesty. Action.
MFEE has rebranded and revisioned our America to Me: Real Talk Montclair to Montclair Community Learning Circles on Race, and we invite you to join as Learning Circle member or facilitator.

In our community, many of us pride ourselves in valuing diversity and promoting racial equity.
- But how racially literate are we?
- Have we grown complacent about racism in Montclair?
- Are our past successes getting in the way of real change to address persistent racial inequality in our town?
Think Montclair is immune from racism? Think again.
Racism is pervasive and insidious. Even in Montclair. It negatively impacts economic prosperity, educational outcomes, and quality of life. But we can do better. It starts with real talk. That leads to real understanding. That sparks real change.
“It is about having conversations that we know need to happen, but aren’t.”
- Learning Circle Member, Fall 2020
Join the Montclair Community Learning Circles on Race. Guided by a trained community member, and using the documentary film America to Me, podcasts, and other media as common texts, Learning Circle members explore their individual understanding of racism and identify opportunities for personal and community accountability.
