Social Justice Initiatives
Southeastern North Carolina is plagued with challenges relative to race relations, socioeconomics, social injustices, and absence of fair ethnic inclusion. The Mt. Calvary Center’s Social Justice Initiatives are designed to create a platform for a diversified panel of community leaders of various ethnicities. The initiative actively engages in candid, yet healthy dialogue centered on rooted behaviors and systematic oppression that presents both immediate and residual negative effects on minorities including ethnicity, gender, low-income, LGBTQ, and other groups. Such dialogues will derive specific outcomes to enhance cohesiveness and engagement.
Mt. Calvary’s Social Justice Initiatives addresses racial tension that has heightened in recent years. The initiative works to develop strategies to address such immediate and ominous concerns of many communities. Developed courses of action for implementation are shared with governing municipalities, law enforcement agencies, educational entities, business and industry, and private organizations alike to improve relations and presence.
The Mt. Calvary Center for Leadership Development is responding to the urgent needs of the communities by bringing diverse groups together, understanding differences, celebrating commonalities, and uniting as Americans.
