June 20, 2017

For over forty years our partners and mentors at the Rogers Eubanks Neighborhood Association/CEER have been fighting to rectify the injustices of the landfill placed in their backyards and many, related broken promises.













Yesterday, June 20, community members, friends, and partners gathered for the historic inauguration of the project that will bring sewer to the Rogers Road community at long last.













Congratulations to Minister Robert Campbell,David & Rose Caldwell, and so many resilient neighbors who brought this day to fruition. We are so grateful for their leadership and example.

People helping People

Donations poured in for some 800 people in the city of Dunn affected by Hurricane Florence. With the help of the Chapel Hill Police Department, RENA collected these supplies you see in these pictures, loaded the truck and sent them on their way!


Minister Campbell said:
Wow !!! THE TRUCK IS ON THE WAY !!!! Thanks everyone for all you do, please pass a thanks to all the people you know who gave.

This is what communities do working together we get great things done, I may not know all the names and have seen all the faces but I feel all your love and the warmth from your donations.


Thanks to the C H P D,  For helping make the task go easy .
If I missed someone it is only because I am overtaken by the outpouring of love.

The Lives We Impact


After watching his granddaughter cut the ribbon to what could be the future for Rogers Road, the end of the 40-year struggle for equality is almost in sight for David Caldwell.

“Our list of things that was promised in 1972 is almost complete, and I think that will be my biggest satisfaction, and once that is done, I’ll feel like I can take a break.”
          David Caldwell on the opening of               the Community Center.
