The State of Exclusion

Since 2006, the UNC Center for Civil Rights has represented communities in North Carolina that lack equal access to municipal services or representation in the political process. Our engagement began with African American communities in southern Moore County that were underbounded from adjacent wealthy white towns. Since its founding in 2001, the Center has also represented historically excluded groups across North Carolina seeking equal access to education. Both our municipal inclusion and education desegregation client communities were referred to the Center or made direct contact based upon prior work. While these two practice areas began separately, our increased understanding of the underlying causes of these inequities and of our clients’ experiences brought the two together.
