building a better wake

about us


We commit to building a better Wake. We will not shy away from our history, and will call out realities, even the ones that cause discomfort. We will invest in understanding the issues facing our community and commit to taking steps to tangibly fix them. ​

our statement

We acknowledge there is a high quality of life in the region for many, but for those who have been historically underserved, underrepresented and marginalized, there is a different reality altogether. That reality is rooted in systemic racism. It has permeated the justice system, created monumental education, health and wealth disparities between black, brown and white Americans, and resulted in discriminatory practices. This moment is the culmination of such injustice.
