Granby Racial Reconciliation Group is a group of clergy and community leaders focused on racial reconciliation in Granby following several incidents of racial injustice including the May 25, 2020 killing of George Floyd by police in Minneapolis, MN.

We’re people committed to the ongoing work of racial reconciliation in and around Granby.

Our Purpose

Our purpose is to raise awareness and continue the conversation on racial justice in our community so that Granby can be a great place for everyone.

We denounce all forms of discrimination and oppression and stand in solidarity with groups that advocate for inclusion. Because there is much work to be done, GRR chooses to focus our energies on improving racial understanding within our local community. We welcome everyone to our events and conversations, regardless of skin color, religious beliefs, conservative or liberal views, disability, gender or sexual identity, or any other label that makes us lose focus on our shared humanity. Our goal is to build bridges, not widen chasms. We have only one requirement – that you join us with an open mind and a commitment to be respectful to all. In return, we commit to bring the same, and to provide a space where we can learn from each other. Have questions about racial issues? We do too. Let’s come together to seek answers.

Our Mission

GRRLogo Draft_edited.jpg

The GRR logo is an impactful reflection of this organization. It was designed by John Stevenson, a member of South Church and a retired graphic artist who worked for many years in the corporate world.

 

Note that the two R’s are facing each other – their “toes” touching – which serves as a visual representation of the relationships that GRR is building. GRR member Ken Mouning chose the Granby colors maroon and gold, with the black R in the middle representing a person of color.  The facing Rs represent connecting and reconciling community members.

 

GRR is grateful for the volunteers who brought this logo together—a simple, recognizable, meaningful design.
