The Charleston Forum, a community project that strives to provide an outlet to discuss race relations across a variety of topics, will host its first-ever Forum Expo as part of the third annual event on Sunday, June 16. The Expo will provide an opportunity for nonprofits with compatible missions addressing issues of race and social justice to share their stories with the public.
“This is a natural extension of the Forum’s mission, progress and programs,” said Brian Duffy, CEO for The Charleston Forum. “These non-profit groups are on the ground, creating avenues for change every day. We are excited to offer a platform for these organizations to share their missions with the community, as well as provide them an opportunity to collaborate with others who are working toward the same goal.”
Nonprofit organizations will be provided with free space to display their information with the hope that each partner is able to find new volunteers, donors and followers to help guide their mission to fight for social justice, as well as begin collaborations with similar entities leading to synergies and shared efforts. Local vendors and corporations will also be invited to display their business and even share their mission towards social justice.
The Forum Expo will be in the Bus Shed on John Street from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m. on Sunday, June 16 with the annual Charleston Forum immediately following at the Music Hall at 4:00 p.m. Those interested in participating should register online at www.thecharlestonforum.com/exporegistration.
