Southside Rising For Justice

Asheville’s historic Southside neighborhood is responding to high levels of gentrification and poverty by rising for a new future that ensures everyone has a healthy place to live, learn, work, worship and play. Join us on July 14 from 1pm – 9pm at the Arthur Edington Center during Southside Rising For Justice, a family-friendly community celebration featuring food, music, cultural performances and hands-on interactive social justice activities for residents of the neighborhood. Uniting community residents, partners and allies through food, cultural arts and civic engagement, Southside Rising For Justice is a day to build community pride and channel it towards co-created strategies for putting justice first in health of mind and body, policies that impact our lives, sustainable community practices and economic mobility.
