There is no Asheville City Council or Buncombe County Commission meeting this week.
Things that are top priority
Reparations Commission Meeting 5/23/22
At last week’s Reparations Commission meeting, the members voted unanimously to formally request that the City and County begin funding Reparations now, and have it be a line item in their budgets each year going forward.
We are deeply concerned that to date there has been no public response from any member of the Asheville City Council or the Buncombe County Commission on this important request. This request must be taken seriously and responded to promptly.
Things to do
We encourage you to reach out to the Asheville City Council and the Buncombe County Commission and ask them to publicly respond to the Reparations Commission request for funding in their budgets. You can personalize and send the email template available at the Racial Justice Coalition website.
