This program will be carried out at a parish level to build an intercultural parish team. They will be made up of parish leadership (including the pastor) and other members of their choosing from the main cultures present at the parish. Their goals are to create partnerships with church and community leaders, follow up the experiences of encounter with small groups whose purpose is to grow in their relationship with each other and deepening their understanding by collaborating on projects involving awareness building, advocacy or action in the community.

Richmond Slave Trail is a walking trail that chronicles the history of the trade of enslaved Africans from Africa to Virginia until 1775, and away from Virginia, especially Richmond, to other locations in the Americas until 1865.
It begins at Manchester Docks, a major port in the massive downriver Slave Trade that made Richmond the largest source of enslaved Africans on the east coast of America from 1830 to 1860. The trail then follows a route through the slave markets of Richmond, beside the Reconciliation Statue commemorating the international triangular slave trade, past Lumpkin’s Slave Jail and the Negro Burial Ground to First African Baptist Church, a center of African-American life in pre-Civil War Richmond.
