Our vision for Rockbridge County, VA, is of a community of all races and ethnicities, who have equal voice, justice, access to resources, and opportunity.  Our community wishes to stand together in welcoming, respecting, connecting and promoting friendliness among ALL our residents.

Racial Justice

Issue Coordinators:


The Racial Justice Issues group is pleased to present “Rockbridge Reads About Race,” a series of books that the community reads together, and discusses in an open forum.  


Our first two books were White Fragility and The Fire This Time. The discussions were led by our wonderful facilitators Chris Gavaler and Ellen Mayock.

NEXT UP: Join us on Tuesday, February 26, for a discussion of The Color of Law: A Forgotten History of How Our Government Segregated America by Richard Rothstein. 

The discussion will be led by Marylin Alexander, and will be held at 6:30 pm in the Piovano Room of the Rockbridge Regional Library, 138 South Main St.
