Together We Stand | #StandAgainstRacism | Networking Social

Join WNC Diversity Engagement Coalition and its members for a fun post-work gathering with community champions from around the Southside community, and in greater Asheville. We will gather at the beloved community hub, Arthur R. Edington Education & Career Center - home of Green OpportunitiesSouthside KitchenMy Community Matters,Word on the Street, Southside Community Garden, and other amazing grassroots organizations. 

Enjoy hors d’oeuvres and sweets from Southside Kitchen, provided FREE to attendees courtesy of WNC DEC, libations from local beverage sponsors, connect with member organizations from WNC Diversity Engagement Coalition, experience storytelling as an anti-racism response, and sign the Stand Against Racism Pledge.

This year's #StandAgainstRacism campaign focuses on supporting full access and engagement for women and girls of color in the political process. Voting rights and civic engagement are, and have always been, core components of our racial justice work. This year's theme certainly comes at a pivotal time as civil rights continue to be attacked and eroded for communities of color.

PLEASE RSVP in advance to help us get a head count for food, and beverage. Thank you, and hope to see you soon!
