Wiregrass Spiritual Enrichment Center Cooperation Circle operates in a predominantly Christian area of the US, and their presence provides a space for spiritual exploration as well as interfaith exposure, appreciation and collaboration. They host several events so that the community is exposed to diversity. These events include inviting a group of Tibetan Buddhist monks in members’ homes and providing a place for them to make a sand mandala. They organize a yearly community Thanksgiving service that is hosted each year at a different religious community. This activity brings everyone together and provides a time to visit various houses of worship. They hold a mixed-race focus group where they talked about racial issues, which was very impactful. Members of the center are personally involved in a lot of social justice work that the Center supports. Some of them have joined a group called SURJ -- Showing Up For Racial Justice -- to find ways to show up in the community and be allies for the cause of racial justice. Their work includes community outreach, where they register people to vote, work with the homeless shelter, and aim to improve race relations in their area.
