2018 Community Impact

Queen City Unity's mission is "To drive equity and equality for all in Charlotte, NC". Our organization is composed of volunteer Unity Ambassador from across the Queen City of different races, religions, genders, socioeconomic statuses, abilities and disabilities, and sexual orientations. We fulfill our mission through our 4 Pillars of Unity

2018 was a year of growth for our organization. Our volunteer Queen City Unity Ambassador base grew by over 200% which enabled us to broaden our impact as well. Every day our impact is felt throughout the city of Charlotte due to their hard work and dedication to create an equal and equitable Charlotte for all. 

A Few Statistics:

United we Thrive

What's next?

In 2018, we rolled out two initiatives that tackle segregation in our schools and our issues as a community around economic upward mobility. These initiatives, Charlotte Forward and the Equity Ambassador Program for the youth, will be the focal point of our efforts in 2019 and we are very proud of their early results. 

 

As we head into 2019 we are beyond excited about the expansion of these initiatives and the impact that they will have. We are certain that they will lead to sustainable lives for those affected by the ongoing effects of segregation and integrate our community. 

We ask that you please consider making a tax-deductible donation to Queen City Unity and help fuel our vision for an equal and equitable Charlotte for all. Your donation will directly impact the scholars of the Equity Ambassador Program and the families of Charlotte Forward, by providing them with the resources that they currently lack in their inequitable communities. Thank you for your ongoing support, Charlotte.
