Moore County Conference on Municipal Underbounding

SCSJ and the Southern Moore Alliance for Excluded Communities will host a conference focusing on communities in Moore County, NC, impacted by municipal underbounding on June 18-19.

Municipal underbounding occurs when impoverished communities of color are excluded from the boundaries where city services are provided in prospering towns.
The conference will allow participants facing similar problems in California, Washington, New Mexico, Oregon, and Mississippi to see its impact via community tours of Jackson Hamlet, Midway, and Waynor Road. SCSJ will also provide background information on the history and prevalence of municipal underbounding and promote discussion of strategies for effectively combating it. Please contact Chris Brook for more information about the conference.
