Charlotte-Mecklenburg Community Relations

Our community is a rich, diverse mix of people from different places, with various backgrounds, perspectives and experiences. Community Relations celebrates individuals and groups who have made a lasting impact in our community by their dedication to fairness, equality and dignity for everyone.


 

 

"Everybody can be great ... because anybody can serve. You don't have to have a college degree to serve. You don't have to make your subject and verb agree to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love."

"People fail to get along because they fear each other; they fear each other because they don't know each other; they don't know each other because they have not communicated with each other."

 "We must develop and maintain the capacity to forgive. He who is devoid of the power to forgive is devoid of the power to love. There is some good in the worst of us and some evil in the best of us. When we discover this, we are less prone to hate our enemies."
