Regional Alliance for Truth and Racial Reconciliation

Regional Alliance

In 2005, a gathering of groups based in the Deep South met to talk about helping communities confront issues of racial violence and reconciliation. Representatives of The Birmingham Pledge, Southern Truth and Reconciliation, and the William Winter Institute for Racial Reconciliation were present. Out of this meeting grew the desire to form a regional alliance, creating a network of organizations dedicated to similar ideals, who could serve local community needs throughout the South. This led to the March 2006 Southern Exposure conference, hosted by the three original groups, at the University of Mississippi, where the Winter Institute resides.

Below are the organizations represented at the March 2006 conference and those who have since joined the alliance.
