Mission Statement

The mission of Bridges Project Ocala-Marion County is to break through barriers among racial and social groups and individuals in Marion County, and to build pathways to understanding for the reduction and elimination of conflict.

Description

Bridges Project started in January, 2015 as a study group following a Friday Forum on the topic of racism that was heavily attended and had a passionate audience response.

Bridges Project took the lead in organizing for removal of the Confederate flag from McPherson Government Complex. Bridges’ activists contributed to the extensive public comments at County Commission meetings throughout the summer and fall of 2015. The flag was changed to a different Confederate flag (its first flag) , and its display moved outside the County Museum of History inside McPherson Government Complex .
We currently have the following Working Groups that are active in our community:
Affordable Housing
Chain Breakers
Engaging Law Enforcement
Monument
Outreach and Communication
Public Education
