Who Are We?

Blount County United is a community organization committed to working for racial justice in Blount County, Tennessee. Our BCU membership is interracial, interdenominational, and interfaith, and together we promote racial understanding and justice in our hometown. Committed to anti-racist action, BCU members believe that We Are Stronger Together.

Blount County United works toward what Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. called the Beloved Community—a space open and welcoming where we can all come together as one.
