The mission of Franklinton Center at Bricks is to provide a nurturing home to local, national, and global programs and organizations seeking liberation.

Franklinton Center at Bricks manifests a world where systemic oppression does not exist; the whole divinity of a person is realized; the memory, contribution and resilience of our ancestors is embraced; and the environment is healed. This world embodies the gifts of learning, outdoor play, teaching, health, safety, love, and connection to beloved community.


Due to the growing spread of COVID-19 our Social Justice Conference and Retreat operation remains closed.

Our team is doing well as we continue practicing social distancing.  Vivian Lucas (Executive Director) and Elly Mendez Angulo (Program Manager) are currently working remotely.  Wayne White (Facility Manger) visits the Center regularly to check on the facilities and to ensure the Center maintains pest control, grounds, water testing, fire safety, internet installation and other facility needs. Please know that this decision is an informed response to support your health, as well as our staff and contractors.

We encourage you to visit our website and maintain virtual contact (FaceBook and Twitter) with us.  In addition, we can be reached from 9am to 5pm Monday to Friday at (252) 377-7171.
