What We Do

Seeing race is not the problem. Refusing to care for the people we see is the problem. The fact that the meaning of race may evolve over time or lose much of its significance is hardly a reason to be struck blind. We should hope not for a colorbind society but instead for a world in which we can see each other fully, learn from each other, and do what we can to respond to each other with love.

Due to the safety social distancing affords us during the COVID-19 virus, all physically engaging events have been postponed until further notice. We will plan some remote activities that you can take part in. See our Upcoming Events.

Brown Bag Lunch Discussions

We meet the first Friday of each month at Williamsburg Baptist Church, 227 Richmond Rd. All are welcome to bring a bag lunch to hear speakers and enjoy a lively discussion about issues that concern the community, particularly issues concerning racial understanding.

Dialogue Circle

Facilitated groups of ten people from diverse backgrounds who meet weekly for two hours for five sessions. The goal is increased understanding of the racial and ethnic issues that divide us and what unites us.

All Together in the Evening

We offer occasional programs in the evening that allow more folks to join the conversation.

Social Gatherings

We look for meaningful and fun reasons to gather, such as trips to local museums, film screenings, and sharing singing and meals.

Annual Book Scholarship

The All Together Book Award recognizes one student from each of the four area public high schools who is known as a peacemaker and all-around friend to everyone. The award was established in memory of Jack Charlton, the first President of All Together.

Walking Tours

We offer occasional walking tours that allow our community understand the experiences of African Americans in Williamsburg. 

Field Trips

We organize trips to sites that contribute to expanding our understanding of diversity and acceptance.
