About

Thus, in partnership with the Tinner Hill Heritage Foundation, the Social Justice Committee of Falls Church and Vicinity was born. The committee is an interfaith network of Falls Church congregations, community leaders, and community members exploring how to create a local culture united in diversity.

The committee’s first event of 2019 was held in February called Breaking the Silence: Having Difficult Conversations About Race. Breaking the Silence was a free, interactive workshop where participants learned techniques to navigate conversations about race while remaining assertive, empathetic, and calm.
