The Problem

We would like address issues of displacement, loss of history and improve race relations in the Charleston area. We are initiating a service learning/ social justice project in Charleston County Schools that would begin with an interview process and have students engage with residents who have lived in the area for more than 10 years.

Our Plan

This project is meant to kick off a service learning/ social justice initiative. This funding will allow us to hold a community meeting of interested parties to engage in a conversation about how to best engage students in understanding the community where they go to school, it's significant history and there role as citizens of that community. This meeting will help to build community awareness and buy-in for the project as well as be a means to gather individuals who already are willing to contribute time and talent to the project.
