The Charles Sherrod Community Development Corporation is a 501c3 that will conduct educational activities surrounding the historic nature of the New Communities and its main location (RESORA property), as well as engage the public in discussions about contemporary controversies, such as black land loss, food-related disparities, environmental and economic justice, social justice and racial healing and other related topics. This organization will continue to leverage the strength of its connection to great organizations like New Communities Inc. and the Southwest Georgia Project to develop programs to help create economic opportunities to improve the lives of many in the rural South. Thank you for your donations to further this effort to improve the lives of small farmers and race relations in the South Georgia and the reapplication of learnings across the United States.
The farm (RESORA) is intended to produce revenue-generating crops, and the production of these crops will be the result of a larger charitable and educational effort. The Charles Sherrod CDC plans to partner with local universities to offer internships and develop joint research projects, creating agricultural jobs for low-income rural participants, developing a mentorship program so that younger farmers can learn from more experienced farmers by evaluating the economic feasibility of the farm and its agricultural practices.
