What is CORE?

CORE works to deconstruct systemic inequities and achieve equitable outcomes for all people in Chatham County through education, organizing, and reconciliation.

CORE and other partners co-host a free, public event using education, music, storytelling, and performance to deepen our understanding of slavery and the efforts to abolish it, and to connect slavery to modern day human rights issues.

Chatham Organizing for Racial Equity

Education

 

We seek to raise awareness of systemic racism and strategies for dismantling it. Learn more about our workshops and events.

Organizing

Our community organizing project builds and strengthens relationships with individuals, community groups, and nonprofits interested in race equity issues. Contact us to start a conversation.

Reconciliation

We use a model of racial identity caucusing to broaden and deepen awareness gained after taking part in racial equity workshops. Contact us to learn more.

“When you’re uncomfortable and you’re so uncomfortable that your skin is itching, that’s when the work starts, that’s when the change happens. Lean into that feeling and explore it more.”
