About Us

The Coalition for Social Equity originated in 1992 out of a need to address numerous racial, sexual and religious incidents at Bloomsburg University of Pennsylvania, in the Town of Bloomsburg, and the surrounding communities.

At that time it was called the University-Community Task Force on Racial Equity. The Task Force was created by Bloomsburg University and the Town of Bloomsburg. It included BU students, staff, faculty, business owners, activists, teachers, and town residents.

Today, the Coalition for Social Equity casts a wider net to promote equality for all marginalized people in Columbia and Montour Counties.

Special events and public education campaigns help community members understand the ways that marginalized community members experience inequality. We believe that social equity is a core American value and every person should be treated with dignity and respect.
