Members of Matthews/Charlotte/Mint Hill CTTT are committed to addressing the legacies and aftermaths of enslavement through:
Uncovering History: researching, acknowledging, and sharing personal, family, community, state, and national histories of race with openness and honesty
Making Connections: connecting to others within and across racial lines in order to develop and deepen relationships
Working Toward Healing: exploring how we can heal together through dialogue, reunion, ritual, meditation, prayer, ceremony, the arts, apology and other methods
Taking Action: actively seeking to dismantle systems of racial inequality, injustice, and oppression; to work for the transformation of our nation.
We help people engage in honest and courageous conversations by providing a safe space using the circle process borrowed from our indigenous siblings which promotes deep listening. Along with Dr. Martin Luther King, our goal is to form a Beloved Community where each person is seen as a brother or sister.
Please note: We meet virtually using Zoom technology on the second Monday of the month and invite you to join us!
ALSO PLEASE NOTE: If you wish to join the Matthews/Mint Hill CTTT Affiliate Group and be added to our email list for future events, we request that you first become a member of CTTT.
