Last week, Susan and Charles joined our partner, University of South Carolina: South Carolina Collaborative on Race and Reconciliation, to continue phases 2 and 3 of Sustainable Equity’s Trust-building and Social Justice program. Sustainable Equity is, as Susan states, “sharing tools with them on Trust-building and Social Justice and they’re guiding important conversations on the difficult issue of racism in a state haunted by the Charleston massacre in 2015, as well as South Carolina’s specific place in the painful racial history of our nation.”
Susan and Charles had a great time with the amazing facilitators and participants in USC’s Collaborative for Race and Reconciliation. Susan’s statement goes on to say that she and Charles are “so grateful to get to focus on needed work with thoughtful, courageous, and committed leaders. They’re doing the kind of work that needs to happen across this country.” Our partners keep us on the move and we are forever grateful to collaborate with each and every amazing participant in taking steps toward achieving sustainable equity.
Bud Ferillo, the Project Coordinator, made a statement on our behalf:
“Susan Glisson and Charles Tucker are raising small armies across the country to unite communities and guide the hard but needed conversations about racial reconciliation.
Susan and Charles are national resources for building knowledge, honest, civil conversations and practical action that change attitudes and dispel myths about white supremacy and black inferiority. They know what works and now we are ready, after 18 months of planning, listening, and learning, to move into communities across the state.
You can read this and cheer us on or join us in this important cause.”
It is an honor to hear this praise from Bud. We look forward to working with all of our partners. If you’re interested in learning more about our approach or partnering with us, please contact us.
