In 2018, a core group of residents in Cincinnati’s Westwood neighborhood, including the Rev. Mary Carson, rector of St. James, Westwood, and parishioner John Eby, began on a journey to be the catalyst for change in the racially divided community. One year later, the group, now called One Westwood, has brought forth a mission statement and a challenge to the neighborhood: to be committed to bridging the racial divide by engaging the community in conversation and by inspiring action that builds equity. On September 14, One Westwood was recognized by the Urban League of Greater Southwestern Ohio at its 70th anniversary gala with its 2019 Journey Award in celebration of community transformation through inclusion, equity and partnership.
