Charlotte Racial Justice Consortium
The Charlotte Racial Justice Consortium (CRJC) is a partnership between Johnson C. Smith University, UNC Charlotte, Queens University, Johnson and Wales - Charlotte Campus and Central Piedmont Community College, supported by the Consortium's selection as a Truth, Racial Healing & Transformation (TRHT) Campus Center by the Association of American Colleges & Universities (AAC&U). Our vision is a Charlotte community that understands its history of race and racism, believes in our shared humanity, embraces a more comprehensive narrative on race, and develops faculty, staff, and student leaders who work across our campuses towards truth, racial healing, and transformation.
The CJRC has five main goals:
- Understand, recognize, and work towards healing the separation in Charlotte’s segregated past and present.
- Embrace a more comprehensive narrative on race.
- Build respectful and trusting relationships among diverse members of our university and Charlotte communities.
- Develop student, staff, and faculty leaders who facilitate truth-telling, racial healing, and transformation.
- Transform the language and culture of race and racism on our campuses and in the Charlotte community.
There are two main components of this initiative in the 2020-2021 academic year:
- The first is a Charlotte Racial Equity Leadership Fellows program. Six students from each campus will be selected to participate in a year-long reflection of Charlotte's history of racism and its connection to each university/college, while exploring racial equity and developing leadership skills. The fellowship will culminate in unique, student-led projects on the three campuses designed to foster truth, racial healing, and transformation.
- The second component includes Racial Healing Circles, which will rotate monthly between our campuses starting in August.
