Over the past two years, the Stan Greenspon Center and our coalition partners successfully advocated for many of the most vulnerable in our communities. Together we improved judicial outcomes for first-time offenders and minors; changed local policy that improved immigrant safety; and expanded affordable housing for those who need it the most. We also launched the new Faith in Housing initiative that brings together diverse congregations of faith from throughout the Charlotte Mecklenberg area to work for fair housing for the least of us. (highlights reel here).

None of our work can be done without strong partnerships and intentional collaboration.

That is why we are holding a public meeting on January 24th, 2019, from 6:30pm – 8:00pm in the Belk Chapel Rotunda on Queens University Campus to set our 2019 Agenda for Justice.

The meeting will begin with a brief overview of the four areas of social justice that will be the focus of our year’s work: Affordable Housing, Criminal Justice, Immigrant Justice, and our brand new focus on Health Care Justice.

Following the focus presentations, you will be invited to join the breakout group that most interests you. These groups will brainstorm short and long-term goals for 2019, action steps required to meet those goals, and other persons or groups who might be interested in collaborating with us. The focus of these groups is to create realistic, measurable goals that can be accomplished utilizing the unique interests and abilities within each group.
