THE CFC BRINGS PEOPLE TOGETHER, IN A STRUCTURED WAY, TO ACHIEVE SOCIAL CHANGE
We’re redefining what a town square looks like in our community, serving as a place where all people, organizations, and ideas can come together to effect real, lasting, and systemic change. By merging cutting edge data science with an emphasis on equity and the lived experience of our most marginalized communities, the Cape Fear Collective supports Southeastern North Carolina’s front line organizations in combating poverty, racism, poor health and education outcomes, and socio-economic disparities.
THE COLLECTIVE VOICE
Maddie – an African-American woman living with her family in New Hanover County – is part of the American middle-class. But, as we talk, you’ll hear the reality of her every day from just making rent to overcoming systemic racism. The hope is these conversations will entertain and inform and give you another perspective to consider when you look at our community.
LET’S TALK JOBS. #CAPEFEARTALENT
The Wilmington Chamber of Commerce, Cape Fear Collective, and RTI International are partnering to survey a minimum of 500 businesses across all industries in our six-county region to raise awareness and identify the areas of highest growth and skills needed in the Cape Fear region of North Carolina. The data collected from the survey will be a very valuable resource after it is broken down and analyzed by industry.
