OUR MOVEMENT GOAL
Collectively as a group, we decided FJEC would be a movement that would bring unity to Franklin and Williamson County through a Multi-Ethnic, Multi Gender, Multi-Socioeconomic, and Multi-Denominational grassroots collaboration for generations in our community. Our goal is to help move this county forward in unity and amplify the voices of those who are overlooked and underserved.
FJEC was formed in June 2020 after the tragic deaths of Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, and George Floyd. A group of community advocates who represent diverse professional backgrounds decided to come together and hold a Prayer Vigil on June 2.
This was a great success with almost 2000 people attending from Williamson County and surrounding areas. We were encouraged and made aware of the urgent need for coalition building and continued dialogue around issues of racial justice. As a result, a group of community advocates who care about our community and seek to bring about positive social change formed the Franklin Justice and Equity Coalition. We are a group of pastors, community activists, educators, and concerned citizens.
Our vision is simple: “The FJEC exists to ensure Justice for current (and) future generations in Franklin and Williamson County.”
