Addressing Regional Segregation From a Faith Perspective

  • Promoting a Fact-Based History of Segregation in the Four County Region

  • Fostering Urban-Suburban Faith Community Dialogues

  • Initiating Targeted Conversations with Elected Officials

  • Advocating for Structural Solutions to the Structural Causes of Racial and Economic Segregation

The One Community Project

The One Community project engages selected urban and suburban faith communities in examining the history and the root causes of social challenges our metro area faces. Instead of putting Band Aids on the problems, we want to understand and address the underlying factors.

The Difference From Other Conversations About Race and Economics

The primary difference between this and other conversation is that we want to create a united, faith-based, regional constituency within the next two years to advocate with legislators and other officials for at least one structural change to address the racial and economic divide of the region.

Faith Community Dialogues

The focus of the faith community dialogues is to inform faith community members about racial and economic segregation in a way that is honest and open while allowing participants to be reflective and vulnerable in a safe and respectful environment.

The model for these discussions is the successful Amazing Faiths conversations sponsored by the Interfaith Conference.

Each participating faith community is asked to provide 3-5 members who will each commit to participate in 3-4 meetings.
