The Weakley County Reconciliation Project (WCRP) believes that conversations based on discovery and acknowledgment of our shared history are critical to the success of our community and region. Our work is to learn who we are and how we can be better. We are creating a social environment where civil, mature, and respectful conversations happen while learning who we are and how we can be better. Rather than blaming, shaming, or accusing anyone, we embrace our uniqueness and diversity and seek to use these qualities to fuel our continued progress toward becoming a leading community in Northwest Tennessee. Whatever your experience or perspective, we want to hear from you.

Everyone: the WCRP held our last general meeting for 2021 today. We will restart regular meetings again after the November and December holiday months, in early 2022. A couple of goals for 2022 include being once again involved in the UT Martin Civil Rights Conference in February, and revisiting our goal of a bus trip to the National Memorial for Peace and Justice/Legacy Museum in Montgomery, Alabama (depending on where the country is with the Covid pandemic). Meanwhile, if you are interested in joining our History Committee, Outreach Committee, or Faith and Community Committee, and become more actively involved with the work of the WCRP in 2022, please email the WCRP at weakleyreconciliation@gmail.com and let us know where you'd like to become involved. Meanwhile we invite members to continue to post news and articles related to our work, that you think will be of interest to WCRP members. Also, if you know anyone in Weakley County who you think might be interested in the work of WCRP, please be sure to direct them to our Facebook page and/or Website (weakleyreconciliation.com).Have a very healthy and happy holiday season y'all!! See you in 2022!! ...
