The Dunbar Pavilion project will use a $100,000 grant to fund programming to support the health and well-being of people of color.
The grant came from the Agnese Haury Program of Environment and Social Justice at the University of Arizona and will be split over two years.
The Dunbar Coalition, the governing body of the Dunbar Pavilion, will partner with El Rio Health Centers, the Coalition for African American Health and Wellness and the University of Arizona Center for Regional Food Studies to create and evaluate programming that will include culturally relevant workshops centered around healthy eating practices, traditional modes of healing, exercise classes and more.
“The grant will fund our first programming effort,” said Debi Chess Mabie, who leads the effort to revitalize the Dunbar Pavilion. “Up until this point, we’ve been a space.”
