Join the Racial Justice Coalition’s New Campaign

May 22, 2023 @ 5:00 pm

The RJC is unveiling a new campaign in a few weeks and you’re invited to take part in a virtual launch on Monday, May 22nd, at 5 pm.

In 2020, both the City of Asheville and Buncombe County apologized to Black community members for hundreds of years of harm they had inflicted or in which they’ve been complicit. This is a debt that seems impossible to pay, which has people wondering: Will Reparations really happen here or will it just be an empty gesture?

Our local Community Reparations Commission (CRC) has taken up the challenge of making local Reparations real. Recognizing just how hard that task was going to be, the RJC went all-in on Every Black Voice, our campaign to ensure that the Commission gets meaningful input from local Black community members to help guide their essential work. Every Black Voice remains our top priority, and we’re ready to launch an additional RJC campaign that will focus on building broad multiracial support for Reparations and the CRC.

The campaign will focus on building broad multiracial support for Reparations and the Community Reparations Commission. You’ll hear how the new campaign could play a pivotal role in determining whether the local Reparations process succeeds or not. Sign up and learn how you can be a part of it.
