A grassroots Public Policy change agent
The Susie King Taylor Center for Jubilee ("the Center" or "the Center for Jubilee") is a grassroots public policy organization with a mission of harnessing strength in numbers to influence public opinion. Its focus is sharing the history of slavery and freedom using these four tools of consciousness: 1) Truth telling, 2) Reconciliation, 3) Healing, and 4) Repair. The Center empowers individuals, nonprofits, governmental institutions, schools, universities and churches through trainings in their "Four Tools of Consciousness Kit" as a standard to effect positive change locally, across the state of Georgia, and nationwide.
