Gather on 312 Broadway, Newport, RI

COMMUNITY MEETINGS

Meetings have been going since November 2016. We are ready to reboot and start off fresh with our topics and with our energy renewed. There will be a new format to the meetings and new leadership. Come by and see what we are up to!

As Sankofa Community Connection, we have been able to successfully engage the community in meetings by holding open community sessions to discuss relevant issues and create plans of action to both empower our community and build lasting, positive, grassroots social movement in our city.

SCC Action Sessions (click the name to be directed to the action session site.)

"SCCAS" is composed of a diverse, non-partisan group of individuals united in concern and committed to community organizing and direct action to end racism, xenophobia, misogyny, environmental destruction, and bigotry in our community. We are committed to collaboratively developing and engaging in actions that improve life where we live. Any discussions we have are oriented toward that goal.
