The Staley B. Keith Social Justice Center provides opportunities to bridge the gaps of social distance between individuals living, studying and working in Hudson across race and economic lines.
There is a thriving commerce along Warren Street, with shop owners and customers often made up of recent relocations from NYC, while the people who have been living a block or two away their whole lives are excluded from this economy.
The main goal of the Social Justice Center is to empower young black men and women to resist the marginalization of their communities. The Center also makes efforts to create a space that brings together individuals from difference socioeconomic, educational, racial and religious backgrounds.
The Center embodies a keen focus on advocacy and will create an advocacy mentorship program in which young black men and women will be trained to be advocates and mentors for other young black individuals in their communities.
