Unifying Community Voices


Unifying Community Voices (UCV) is an initiative launched by DCABPI that includes a series of forums that coincides with a Community Revitalization Plan, along with Youth Creative Arts Expressions to address Social Justice and Racial Equity issues in Durham, NC.  Each UCV forum series session is guided by Courageous Conversation™, the transformative experience that acquaints individuals with a set of tools, the Protocol, to engage, sustain and deepen dialogues about race.

Participants will be introduced to the three components of the Protocol: The Compass, Four Agreements, and Six Conditions. The enlighten engagement with Courageous Conversation™ guides an exploration of the life impact of race, and promotes an essential literacy and consciousness to examine our own personal, professional and organizational development. Designed to meet participants at whatever their level of experience, Courageous Conversation™ enhances our effort to promote racial equity. These multiracial conversations about the roots of racial disparities are designed to challenge and amend the racially discriminatory policies, practices,and decisions (both intentional and unintentional) that contribute to these disparities.
