Our community engagement, education, and advocacy work around the historical injustice of urban renewal continues to grow and evolve. The thriving neighborhood of Brooklyn in 2nd Ward was demolished by the city in the late 1960s, but the effects of displacement and destruction continue to shape Charlotte. Please join us for our Brooklyn: Trauma, Resilience and Faith program on February 20th from 11:30 to 1:00 pm at Covenant Presbyterian Church or on March 5, 2020 from 6:00 to 7:30 pm at the West Boulevard Public Library to explore the ongoing impact of trauma and the interplay between our souls and our city. In partnership with MeckMIN, we’ll also examine resiliency, trauma recovery, the long process of reconciliation, and what people and houses of faith can do to facilitate healing of our communities.
