1999 - OMEGA Project

The OMEGA Project became an important tool in helping communities find common ground to solve problems in which race is a factor.  Representatives from more than twenty counties participated in this unique program which offered intensive training and support to those communities looking to improve the quality of public dialogue, and personal trust among citizens of diverse racial and cultural backgrounds.  Thanks to the Charles Stewart Mott Foundation and matching funds from the state legislature, the Palmetto Project was able to make this program available to every community in South Carolina.
