Our founder attended NCCJ's Camp Anytown here in Houston in the '90s. The week-long high-school leadership camp created to break down racial and other stereotypes changed her outlook of the world, and ever since she found out the camp has disbanded, she's been trying to bring it back. When the AME shooting in Charlston happened, she decided it was time. After connecting with the National Federation for Just Communities and local social justice curriculum designers and facilitators, the Libra Project was born. The 2016 pilot program was a success, and we're looking forward to growing and making a difference in Houston.
We are passionate about building unified communities. Our curriculum was designed by educators and former educators trained in facilitating dialogue across lines of difference, and we look forward to sharing and learning with a dynamic group of students this summer. Join us!
