Racism exists in Talbot County, and people are treated unfairly because of the color of their skin. TCAR’s mission is to help each of us face and better understand that fact, building a foundation for change and action.
In recent times the racism in our community has not erupted in some dramatic, headline grabbing incident or disruption for all to see. Yet sad is the fact that very many blacks (and Latinos too) still, in 2020, experience of episodes of unfair treatment, indignities, and discrimination simply due to the color of their skin. And many do not speak up. Now is the time to speak.
Joining TCAR is a commitment to imagine walking in that other person’s shoes.
Joining TCAR is a commitment to try and understand what racism is, to try and better see the acts big and small, the thoughtless omissions, the legal arrangements, the unexamined customs that comprise racism in all facets of our lives, and the fears that surround the prospect of change.
Joining TCAR is a commitment that you will work towards specific concrete reforms and changes in our community that YOU think will enhance racial justice here and now—not what someone else thinks, and not what the leadership of TCAR thinks.
We’re inviting everyone of good will who wishes to work peaceably for racial justice in our County—families, individuals, businesses, and organizations– to join us in this essential work.
Bringing together the talents and insights of emerging young professionals (YPs), ages 21-40, in Talbot County is what YPs is all about. Brought to you by The Talbot County Chamber of Commerce, YPs is simply a network of diverse peers with a passion for making a difference, a willingness to learn, the desire to build important relationships and the energy to get involved in the community.
Too often, young professionals don’t feel like they have a place or voice in business meetings or in the community. Through the programs & resources delivered by YPs, young professionals will have more opportunities to develop professionally, get connected & shine.
