Communicate

To foster nonviolent dialogue, action, and awareness about racism throughout our community. Programs include panel-led community discussions; educational and therapeutic workshops featuring nonviolent communication strategies; and an array of coordinating educational resources, including literary (“Project Read Something”), historical (“History & Race in Florence”), and digital (“Video”) resources that are available on our website.

Educate

Educate

To empower each other to recognize racism and its effects; to exchange useful strategies for fighting racism and promoting open communication in our daily lives; and to bridge divisions in our community through workshops, group discussions, and media resources. We offer educational workshops to all members of the community and schools, churches, and businesses. We also offer an afterschool and summer program for youth with a specific focus on inclusion and global cultural awareness. Contact us to schedule a workshop or for more information.

Advocate

Advocate

To give minority residents a stronger voice in our community by cultivating a passion for civic engagement and grassroots leadership. Our voter registration and education initiatives work to ensure that everyone’s voice is heard. We also work closely with our municipal leaders on a variety of projects, hosting debates for prospective candidates and developing initiatives with law enforcement such as the Florence Police Citizens Advisory Council, an outgrowth of our panel discussions on race and criminal justice.
