We Resolve to do Whatever It Takes to Root Out Extremism and Hatred
Giving voice to our own struggles, giving voice to the voiceless, and using our collective influence to create positive change for our Queens University community, the Charlotte community and beyond.
The Stan Greenspon Center works with the Queens community, congregations across the city, and the Charlotte community at large to support participants as they move from volunteerism to advocacy to creating systemic change in their areas of concern and passion. We support them in using their individual and collective voices to promote change on issues of human dignity and human rights.
The Stan Greenspon Center partners in dialogues and programs that increase understanding across lines of difference.
The first step to change is enlightenment.
We opened this year by offering an eight week Refugee Advocacy training program for one hundred and thirty Charlotteans from across the city and for Queens students. Each session included an academic or professional presentation and a dialogue on potential pathways for advocacy. Video recordings of and blog reflections on all the sessions can be found here.
