Action For Racial Justice Beta Program

Thank you for your interest in applying to be an Action For Racial Justice Beta tester. We are seeking applicants who are interested in getting early access to the ARJ program in order to provide feedback and testing as a beta tester.

CAUTION: Beta software may contain bugs or usability issues; if this concerns you, please do not apply.

What is the program?

ARJ is building a program designed for large-scale use in overturning racially unjust policies and practices. It involves a web-based software application and a network of highly trained facilitators and trainers - along with the most important part: a vast army of active participants, like you.

We expect this to be a very popular beta test so please understand that applying for this test does not ensure that you will be selected for participation. If you are selected, you will be contacted via email. Please also note that all product information is strictly confidential. We look forward to the opportunity to work with you.

What We Expect From You

Entering the ARJ program is a serious commitment; overturning systemic racism is a marathon not a sprint. Participants will complete an initial sign-up, pay a registration fee, and complete required reading and viewing prerequisites. They will then attend an online orientation and training session followed by assignment to an "action pod," a team of like-minded individuals working together over a period of time to take actions related to addressing specific policy issues.

  • We expect that you are comfortable with using the web and online services, with an “average” to “above average” knowledge of related technologies.
  • We expect you to notify us right after you complete registration and let us know your first impressions, preferably within an hour of when you first started the program. We also expect you to continue sending bug reports or other issues you find as you continue using the platform.
  • We expect you to “explore, test, and experiment with” the new features in an effort to make sure the program works to fulfill the ARJ mission. We may also contact you with specific questions about different features of the program and ask for your impressions, or ask you to enter your feedback on a webpage or web form.

What To Expect From Us

  • A platform that is easy to use, supports the ARJ mission, and enables participants to be an effective member of the ARJ community.
  • Dedicated facilitators and trainers.
  • Prompt, professional, and courteous communication from us.
  • Respect for your privacy.
