Theory of Change

Foundational principles, values, goals, and our ten year plan can all be found in our theory of change document

Liberation Compendium

The Liberation Compendium - essential readings and continuing ed resources, frameworks that inform our vision - includes asset based frameworks, anti-racism and anti-oppression resources, among others. The content of the Liberation Compendium is utilized in Rhizome programming.

Truth and Reconciliation

In February of 2022, the Mecklenburg County Library Spangler Room published a report on Systemic Racism in Mecklenburg County. In partnership with the Coalition for Truth and Reconciliation, QCFT published a Community Conversation guide to use as a companion with the report. We trained conversation facilitators, hosted conversations, created a mobile museum, and cohosted a Social Justice Series.

Walking Charlotte as a Labyrinth

QCFT Co-Founder, Greg Jarrell, leads participants on a 3-mile, approximately 2-hour walk through Uptown Charlotte. Along the way, you'll look for what is present and what is not present, hoping to see more clearly into the past and the future of the Queen City.

She Speaks

To elevate the voices of Black women and provide a financial opportunity by developing their oration skills.
