The Washington Grove Racial and Social Equity Committee (RASEC) and the Washington Grove and Emory Grove United Methodist churches’ Racial Justice Coalition are sponsoring a community walk from Emory Grove to Washington Grove, with stops at important historical sites along the way, followed by a community meal at McCathran Hall. A brochure will provide brief historical summaries about the sites, some of which include information about the role race has played. The acknowledgment and telling of the full story can be a way to bring about trust and better relationships with our neighbors. This is particularly timely, given that a new Emory Grove community is being planned and built!
Please register at https://rebrand.ly/q65avq9 and then join us on Sunday, June 5 at 2 pm, meeting at Johnson’s Park (18000 Washington Grove Lane) to start the walk of about 1.2 miles. At the conclusion of the walk, we’ll enjoy a light meal with provided by our Emory Grove neighbors at McCathran Hall at 3:30 pm.
