The CARE initiative began March 2016 in response to racist literature distributed in Lexington, VA neighborhoods. Together we organized an anti-racism rally and are continuing to move forward to combat systemic racism through creative ways as we seek to build community, educate ourselves, and lift up our neighbors of color.
