Many Voices - One Community

Our Vision:

Lynchburg is a community where all people have equal access to resources, opportunities and legal, political and social power.

Our mission is to create a racially equitable community where race and/or ethnicity are not predictors of success in any aspect of life and where public policies, institutional practices and social structures no longer favor one group of people over another.
