About the Collaborative

The Greater Springfield Race & Faith Collaborative is the well-spring from a series of conversations that followed the visitation of a national race exhibit to the city of Springfield in summer of 2012. Program development began when the group, planning to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Martin Luther King’s "I Have a Dream" speech, began exploring their collective desire to improve race relations and foster an appreciation of racial diversity in the Springfield area.

Their discussions and desire led to the idea of having a year-long project to improve race relations and enhance racial diversity in the greater Springfield area.
