OUR CAUSE

 IF WE LOSE THIS story 

 WE LOSE PROOF  

 THAT WE CAN ACT JUSTLY 

 TO ALL PEOPLE 

OUR CAUSE

HELP US BUY THE BELMEAD PROPERTY AND CONTINUE THE MISSION OF SOCIAL AND ENVIRONMENTAL JUSTICE.

‚Äč

Our mission is to preserve intact, as much as reasonably possible, the 2,265 acres in Powhatan, Virginia, land currently owned by Sisters of the Blessed Sacrament. We strongly believe the preservation of the Belmead STORY, for the benefit of present and future generations of Virginians and other Americans, is of utmost importance. This is a place of cultural, historical, spiritual, ecological, and educational value, rooted in the legacy of St. Katharine Drexel.

 

In a time when our country and the world have been rocked by vitriol and violence between different races, creeds and socioeconomic backgrounds; now more than ever, we need a place that speaks to our human potential for justice and healing. St. Katharine created that place over 120 years ago, and her voice still speaks here, at Belmead.   

 

Our goal is to work collaboratively with all  parties who are interested in preserving the physical legacy of St. Katharine – Belmead on the James. Please contact us about how you can help.
