ABOUT US

We would like to introduce our organization, Solidarity Isn’t Silent. We are a group of citizens willing to stand up to the injustice that we see the Black community face daily. We provide a safe, positive environment in which to have difficult, necessary discussions about racial issues in our own community and at large. We also provide tools for further education on topics such as how to talk to your children and family about racism and a multitude of ways to take action to enact social change. We acknowledge that none of us are done growing. “Anti-racist” is not a status you can achieve or a badge to wear but a verb to be practiced daily. 

We want you to join us. 

We commit to learning alongside you and wholeheartedly accept that we are NOT the experts on the matter. However, we believe that together we are stronger and can make a significant impact. We would love to start a conversation with you about ways we can build a partnership. 

We hope you will stand with us! With your support, we are one step closer to a more equitable community, city, and world. 

who we are

OUR FOUNDER

I am Karah. I was born and raised in Canyon, Texas and played basketball for the Lady Eagles (Go Eagles) then went on to play basketball at Wayland Baptist (Go Queens)! I am the mother of two beautiful, biracial young men. They are the light of my life and my motivation for all that I do! I have worked for Randall County at the Youth Center of the High Plains since 2011. I graduated from West Texas A&M University with a Bachelors in Criminal Justice: Administration. I was also selected for the National Society of Leadership and Success and continually made the Dean’s List throughout my college career. 
 
My objectives in creating Solidarity Isn’t Silent are multi-faceted. I not only want to bring to light systematic racism, but help us all self-reflect in areas that we may not otherwise focus on. I want to help people to step out of their comfort zones and challenge themselves and their thinking. I also want to help support black businesses and provide them with encouragement and patronage from other like-minded people in the community. I hope that together, we can serve within the community, as well as help lead the community. 
 
I hope that you’ll not only take the time to look over our site, but also take the time to educate yourself and open your heart and mind. I welcome open-minded discussions and healthy debates. I think that we allow ourselves to grow and evolve when we open our minds and listen to others.  

Welcome to Solidarity Isn’t Silent!
