WAYV RUN KOLLEKTIV
"In a racist society, it is not enough to be non-racist, we must be antiracist." – Angela Davis
Berlin's Wayv Run Kollektiv invites Black, brown and queer people to reclaim the streets of Berlin and to join our Anti Racism Run 2020.
Following the steps and movements of Anton Wilhelm Amo, Amadeu Antonio, May Ayim, Audre Lorde, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, Oluwa Toyin Salau and many more, we are standing up against racism. We are raising our voices against racism. We are fighting against racism.
The right-wing protests during Covid have once again showed us that it is a white privilege to move safely through urban spaces. With our Anti Racism Run, however, we want to bring people from the BIPOC* communities together and run under the protection of the group to stand up and move against structural racism.
As athletes and activists, students and teachers, artists and entrepreneurs and citizens moving through spaces in and outside of running, in and beyond Germany, we are taking a stand against racism. With the cancellation of this year's Berlin Marathon, our run gives us an opportunity to raise funds for SANKOFA Kita and GLADT e.V. as we push for progress every single day.
