Over 140 individuals representing over twenty congregations gathered for the event.
We watched a video (produced by Beloved Community Cville) about the Lee statue, its history that led to the Unite the Right rally and its subsequent removal.
Finally, attendees identified assets that can be used in tangible ways to meet community needs. Each asset and action idea was taped to the wall for all attendees to read.
We will follow up on these ideas to connect individuals and congregations to partner together in creating Beloved Community here in Charlottesville and Albemarle county.
