Our Vision

RaceMatters.org is a web portal intended to encourage and provide inspiration and tools for racial reconciliation. It has information about racial matters throughout America and the world, both historical and current. However, our most important purpose is to provide information about people and organizations whose efforts are helping to achieve racial reconciliation in Palm Beach County, Florida and to serve as a resource for them.

Here are some thoughts about how our effort will develop.


RaceMatters.org is in continual development and was last updated on July 9, 2014. So far, for demo and discussion purposes, we have identified 1178 resource items, and we have a search engine.

The most important next work will enable us to add content more easily and will enable any visitor to our website to add his or her evaluation to specific items of content. The conclusions from all evaluations will then be available to guide future visitors. Our website includes controversial viewpoints and it includes information about discriminatory violations that might not be wanted by some visitors. We call this material "sensitive". When are further along in developing this site, the visitor will have the ability to filter out sensitive material when using the "Search" facility. One will also be able to turn on or off a filter which will particularly identify Palm Beach County people, institutions and events. 91 items are treated as "sensitive" at this time.

Important public questions and tasks include these.


Important technical considerations and next steps include these. These are the items for which funding is needed. Items in boldface are high priority.
