CURE exists with the conviction that understanding systemic racism in America
is a critical part of building an authentically equitable community.
CURE is a local volunteer, advocacy group in Larchmont and Mamaroneck, NY that strives to educate our neighbors
about the structures and implications of systemic racism in our country’s institutions, as a critical part of dismantling it.
We believe that a deep knowledge of the roots of racism will plant seeds in the minds and hearts of blossoming activists, accomplices and anti-racists who will take ACTION. We continue to learn that this is deep lifelong work
which is essential and valuable for ALL. Learn with us.

We acknowledge that we are not experts and are constantly learning. We admit to our mistakes, and have the courage to hold ourselves accountable.
We call people in, instead of out. We listen without judgement. We meet people where they are with generosity. We accept that racism has dehumanized people of all “races”.
We are constantly learning from and with others. We honor all who have done and are doing this work.
We seek to decenter whiteness and embrace white accountability. We are guided in our actions and learning by People of Color. We make space for healing from centuries of trauma caused by white supremacy in all communities.
what we do.
Since 2018 CURE has reached thousands of community members throughout Westchester through 25 events
We build community by partnering with organizations and working with individuals.
The Lions are proud to serve as Fiscal Sponsors of CURE. Currently, The Lions Club of Larchmont/Mamaroneck enables the CURE coalition to collect donations through this fiscal sponsorship. This will, in turn, give YOU, our generous supporters, a tax deduction on your contributions. However, by this summer we will finally be a 501c3!
Our GO FUND ME is for expenses which make CURE’s mostly FREE events, take shape!
We are truly grateful for your generosity and for helping us bring these necessary and difficult conversations to our community.
We hope these events will change the way we view race, racism and will help us to grow a more equitable world,
first in our own backyards then globally!
