Social Justice & Community Organizing
In envisioning our first five years, the Greenspon Center engaged in issue-based community organizing by supporting campaigns that achieved significant successes in the realms of affordable housing, criminal justice, and restorative justice. To learn about our past wins, explore the following: Our Past Wins & Work, Affordable Housing, Immigrant Justice, Criminal Justice, Truth and Reconciliation, and Environmental Justice.
In envisioning our next five years, we recognize that our impact can be expanded by investing our resources in social justice and community organizing education. We are developing community-based participatory research that listens to and honors the experience of our Charlotte organizers and activists, past and present. We have shifted our focus to deepen and broaden Social Justice and Community Organizing (SJCO) capacity in Charlotte by offering open and accessible SJCO education to the Charlotte social justice community and beyond.
