Neighbor to Neighbor: Building Alliances Across Cultures

rnrnFor many years Latinos, African Americans and people of African descent have lived in the same communities, residing in the same apartment buildings, working the same types of jobs and sharing the same struggle! rnrnYet too often our language, nationality and ethnicity is used by those who benefit from divided communities to prevent us from coming together to fight common challenges and bring about positive change for everyone. rnrnIn collaboration with the Latino Economic Development Corporation and Center for Community Change, the DC Jobs with Justice Black & Brown Alliance has developed a series of dialogues to examine the divisions between our communities, analyze the root causes of division and share tools that you can use in your community to build unity.rnrnHELP BUILD UNITY IN OUR CITY!rn1.
