Unity in Community (UiC) is a multiracial, volunteer group of individuals committed to achieving racial equity in the North Mecklenburg, N.C. area. We are nonpartisan and open to all who share our vision.
Unity in Community exists to achieve racial equity primarily in the North Mecklenburg communities of Cornelius, Davidson, and Huntersville.
Small Groups, which are central to our very basic and informal structure, are supported by a Board of Directors and Action Committees.
In addition to participating in a Small Group, Unity in Community encourages Supporters to participate in one of its Action Committees:
The UiC Board and Supporters, including Small Groups and Committees, meet as a Large Group on a quarterly basis. In this forum, the Board, Small Groups, and Committees provide updates on UiC activities; vote on key issues; learn more about racism and social justice from guest speakers within the community; participate in group activities; and meet new UiC Supporters.
Unity in Community does not claim to be a faith-based group, however, if we think about the saying, “Love your neighbor as yourself,” it’s hard to love your neighbor if you don’t know your neighbor. And once you begin to know your neighbor, you begin to trust your neighbor and then to love your neighbor. And where there is love, justice is possible.
