Founded in May 1992 after rioting scarred Los Angeles, Belmont Against Racism (BAR) is a community-action, all-volunteer organization addressing issues of racism and prejudice by following the slogan, think globally, act locally. We focus on fostering awareness and educating the community about exclusionary practices, creating a welcoming community for all, and increasing diversity throughout the town. While BAR, in its first decade, mostly focused on addressing racism, we have broadened our mission to include all problems of prejudice that impact our town and local community.
To promote dialogue, awareness, and understanding about prejudice and to celebrate diversity in Belmont.
BAR meetings are open to the public. Unless otherwise noted, meetings are held at 7:30 pm at the Belmont Public Library.
Concerns about the safety and card-being of our gay and lesbian students in the Belmont schools led to the establishment of the Gay Straight Alliance Committee in 2001. BGSAC is devoted to addressing issues faced by members of the LGBTQ community in Belmont.
