Greensboro, NC

Beloved Community Center of Greensboro

Vision: Drawing from the life and work of movement social leaders, the BCC’s connection to the social justice movement started long before it’s official founding 20 years ago. Through community building, community organizing, advocacy and other forms of coalition building, the BCC continues to work towards building a “Beloved Community.”

Impact: Through various initiatives including the ‘Civic Engagement and Democratic Justice’ program, the ‘Poor People’s campaign’ and the ‘National Council of Elders’ the BCC mobilizes across Greensboro for and with working class people, people of color, and other historically marginalized groups, whose leadership and voices has been sidelined.
