Buncombe County -- July 2, 2024: Buncombe County Government Community News: Mark your calendars for Buncombe

County’s Racial Equity Action Plan Leading with Race Summit on July 20. Almost four years after the Buncombe County Board of Commissioners declared racism a public health and safety crisis, named equity a foundational value, and adopted a Racial Equity Action Plan, we’re sharing our progress on the goals we’ve accomplished and the County’s next steps.

You’re invited to join us from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at 35 Woodfin St., for a community engagement event. There will be songs from local Black musicians and a culturally informed talk and dance lesson by representatives from Atsila Anotasgi, Museum of the Cherokee People.

Buncombe County will also share information about the Racial Equity Action Plan, goals accomplished, and our next steps. This event is free, open to the public, and for all ages. There will be activities for young people, with food trucks and vendors on site. Registration is encouraged but not required. Please RSVP at the link below.
