Community Action Awareness Programs (CAAP)

CAAP members developed a model for addressing diversity from within individual communities. Using the Orangeburg community for the pilot program, CAAP brought together a dozen community leaders, representing a wide array of issues including economic development, education, local politics, healthcare, finance and business. These community leaders were given background materials and led into a discussion on diversity. The fruits of that discussion were generated into a summary plan of action and submitted to the Liberty Fellowship to be replicated by other communities in the future.
