Challenging White Supremacy

Chris Crass was an organizer and educator with the Catalyst Project from 2000 through 2011. The Catalyst Project, based in the San Francisco Bay Area, grew out of the Challenging White Supremacy workshop, which was founded by Sharon Martinas and Mickey Ellinger in 1992. Crass worked with Challenging White Supremacy after the 1999 WTO mass actions in Seattle, Washington to help strengthen anti-racist politics and practice in the mostly white sections of the Global Justice Movement. Movement elders Elizabeth Martinez, Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz, and Paul Kivel were also key mentors to the younger generation organizers in Catalyst Project. In the 2000s, Crass was involved with other anti-war and anti-racist work through the Heads Up Collective.[1].
