Project Breakthrough

Founded in 2006 in collaboration with The Community Foundation for Northeast Florida, Jacksonville Human Rights Commission and the Aspen Institute Roundtable on Community Change, Project Breakthrough: “Changing the Story of Race in Jacksonville” seeks to raise awareness about the implications of structural racism in diverse populations and introduce a common framework for understanding the causes of racial disparities. Project Breakthrough has reached corporate and civic bodies, the educational community, media leaders, and the nonprofit sector. In collaboration with the UNF College of Education, Project Breakthrough has also been tailored specifically for teachers and interns who work in urban settings, equipping educators with the tools they need to break the cycle of racism and bigotry in the school setting.
