This calendar includes city and other public meetings that are opportunities to “show up” for racial justice in Asheville. When “showing up” at meetings, come to listen and learn if you are not yet knowledgeable about the direct needs of the black community in this area. You can learn a lot from listening. You can also hold your elected officials accountable for the promises they make. And hold their feet to the fire when they seem to forget those promises. And you can begin to build relationships by your presence. You can also gain understanding of how certain systems and councils work in our city so as to determine how best to improve and challenge them such that they truly meet the needs of ALL of Asheville’s citizens.
