____

The “WRITE on RACE to be RIGHT on RACE” community journaling initiative hopes to ignite community awareness and education about the causes and effects of racial divisiveness on our community. This innovative approach will harness the power of individual and collective community reflection, reaction, contemplation, and dialogue on race to establish a baseline of the racial experience, racial sentiment, and racial consciousness of our community. This two-year initiative will serve as a catalyst to inform and direct future organizational and community efforts at combating and eliminating racism.
