Chris Crass

Chris Crass is a longtime organizer, educator, and writer working to build powerful working class-based, feminist, multiracial movements for collective liberation. He is a Unitarian Universalist and works with faith-based communities to help build up the spiritual Left.

Chris co-founded the anti-racist movement building center, the Catalyst Project, which combines political education and organizing support to develop and support anti-racist politics, leadership, and organizing in white communities and builds dynamic multiracial alliances locally and nationally. Through Catalyst Project, where he was the co-director for more then a decade, he worked with tens of thousands of activists working on a wide range of issues in their communities and on their campuses.

He joined with white anti-racist leaders around the country to help launch the national anti-racist network Showing Up for Racial Justice (SURJ), which works in white communities for racial justice.  Rooted in his Unitarian Universalist faith he works with congregations, seminaries, and religious and spiritual leaders to build up the Religious Left. 


Crass's books are Towards the "Other America": Anti-Racist Resources for White People Taking Action for Black Lives Matter and Towards Collective Liberation: Anti-Racist Organizing, Feminist Praxis, and Movement Building Strategy.
