Selma, Alabama Cultural Exchange: Food Justice Spring Break
The Resource Center for Nonviolence Cultural Exchange SELMA (CE SELMA) program provides opportunities for people of all ages to integrate intercultural understanding and develop culturally inclusive perspectives. Resources included in the program are geared toward developing knowledge about culture, cultural diversity and identity within the context of the United States.
Our program is designed to expose individuals to people from different cultural, religious, geographic and socio-economic backgrounds and in so doing provide the opportunity for participants to develop a greater understanding of diversity – both in the United States and worldwide. We encourage everyone to interact with and learn from people who are different from themselves and to participate in new and unique experiences beyond their own communities. CE SELMA assists participants to develop positive relationships with others, understand a broader range of perspectives, and develop the knowledge and skills needed for participation in our multicultural society.
Cultural Exchange SELMA is managed by the Resource Center for Nonviolence.
