Big thank you to all the volunteers, including many, many UNC students who turned out this morning to help Orange County Justice United do a survey of the Northside and Pine Knolls areas in order to:
- Position community priorities in the public eye,
- Build relationships and get support for their social justice agenda by residents and institutions in the Northside neighborhood
- Document housing issues and community infrastructure in disrepair
Orange County Justice United
is a broad-based, multi-racial, multi-faith, multi-issue, strictly non-partisan citizens’ power organization dedicated to making change on social justice issues (affordable housing, healthcare, education, living wages) affecting the lives of low- and middle-income residents in Orange County.
The organization is partnered with 30+ local churches and social support institutions in promoting their agenda.
Also, thanks to Delores Bailey and Empowerment for providing facilities and logistical support for today’s effort.
