Actions

Communicate

Communicate

To foster awareness and dialogue about racism throughout our community. Programs include participatory community events and 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. We also facilitate difficult but healing community conversations through initiatives such as our "Whose Monument?" Campaign.

Educate

Educate

To empower one another to recognize racism and its impact; to exchange useful anti-racist strategies and promote open communication in our daily lives; to address Black history and systemic racism in our municipal and educational systems; and to create space for inclusivity through initiatives such as our Shoals Black History Project. We offer racial justice materials and workshops to all members of the community as well as schools and other organizations. We also offer an afterschool and summer program for youth with a focus on inclusion and cultural awareness. Contact us to schedule a workshop or for more information.
