What is BeLoved?
We believe in the power of community! You have heard it takes a village to raise a child. We believe that everyone needs a village. Each of us needs a supportive network of people in our lives, ways to use our gifts, and meaningful ways to engage the world and make a difference.

We believe that we are the people we have been waiting for!  We create innovative solutions to some of the toughest challenges we face as a community.  We try to put love into action daily through these solutions to make our community better. Check out our Projects page to learn more! We invite you to join us through donating and volunteering!

BeLoved Asheville

****** ESPANOL DE BAJO *****
Once again our community gathered to tell the truth and walk the path of those who suffer in our city and world. As we marked Good Friday with the theme X Marks the Spot: Stolen Land, Stolen Lives. Join us in this photo journey through the sites in our city where we walked and remembered the taking of 1.5 billion acres of indigenous lands, the stealing of half of Mexico, the cruelty of border cages and bans, the separation of families through Indian Schools and at the border as well is in our cities, marking the evils of slavery in Asheville and the contributions of African Americans, seeing the places those without homes are relegated to sleep, visiting those who are the victims of mass incarceration to say "we see you, we love you. no mas jaulas, no more cages" and to mark the deaths of too many through the cruelties of police brutality, war, and poverty. As we say the truth in public and mark spaces, we call ourselves to transformation in the hope that the Beloved Community awaits us. #loveinpublicisjustice #avl #communitypower #stolenland #stolenlives

Una vez más, nuestra comunidad se reunió para decir la verdad y recorrer el camino de quienes sufren en nuestra ciudad y en nuestro mundo. Como el Viernes Santo marca con el tema X que marca el lugar de la tierra robada . Únase a nosotros en este viaje fotográfico por los sitios de nuestra ciudad donde caminamos y recordamos haber tomado 1.5 billones de acres de tierras indígenas, el robo de la mitad de México, la crueldad de las jaulas y prohibiciones fronterizas, la separación de familias a través de escuelas indias y La frontera también está en nuestras ciudades, marcando los males de la esclavitud en Asheville y las contribuciones de los afroamericanos, viendo que los que no tienen hogares están relegados a dormir en las calles , visitando a quienes son víctimas de encarcelamientos en masa para decir "los vemos, Te amamos, no mas jaulas, no más jaulas "y para marcar la muerte de demasiados a través de las crueldades de la brutalidad policial, la guerra y la pobreza. Cuando decimos la verdad en espacios públicos y marcados, nos llamamos a la transformación con la esperanza de que la Comunidad Amada nos espere. #loveinpublicisjustice #avl #communitypower #stolenland #stolenlives
