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's 1st ever: Donor Drive

Chatham Organizing for Racial Equity (CORE) is launching our first ever donor drive campaign titled: “Dismantling Racism Together”.  The campaign will begin on September 15 and last through October 15 at midnight. Our goal is to collectively raise $10,000 towards community organizing, educational programming, and more!

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.


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.


“The first thing you can do is to understand the problem. When we look at how we got here, 80 percent of our history has been spent in a racialized, segregated, or enslaved way of life and culture.”

— Stephanie Terry, Organizing Director


“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.”

— Karinda Roebuck, Executive Director
