Becoming a Sponsor 

Greetings All,

One Community United had a busy year and is grateful for the generous support from our community, we were able to provide positive engagement and action within our community. We are once again inviting you to partner with us in 2024-2025 to assist with the work we are doing in Rome and Floyd County.

One Community United continues to build institutional power through broad based organizing, training and developing leaders to act on issues impacting families. Here are some highlights to show how those dollars were used by OCU:


  • OCU leaders meet regularly with faith community leaders, school leaders, local business leaders, and elected officials.

  • During the Rome City Commission Elections, we held what we called a "City Commission Candidates Accountability Session" with every candidate for the commission present. This event was attended by over 250 voters.

  • Organizer, Candice Spivey, met with the new RCS Associate Superintendent, Dr. Patrick-Lashley, and other school leaders to develop a group of volunteers and parents to support our elementary schools. The goal is to build a culture of high achievement, beginning with Main Elementary and Anna K. Davie Elementary.

  • To celebrate our newest national holiday, Juneteenth, we showed a movie at the Historic DeSoto Theater in collaboration with RIFF.    

  • In the fall of 2023, we were on the walking bridge for our annual One Table fundraising dinner. Berry  College and Courtyard by Marriott were again helping with serving and the meal and joined by the culinary students of Rome High. This year included an after dinner social at Courtyard that they graciously hosted.

  • We partnered with RIFF in receiving a grant to be a host for 6 documentaries that focus on life and issues in the South. These showings over the course of 8 months also had panel discussions afterward.

  • The interactive art show and Hearts United Gathering (HUG), that was insightful, and empowering has led to another event during Black History Month in collaboration with artists Xaivier Ringer and Amanda Banks. The theme this year was "Cultivating Black Futures" and open to all. This year they will also be collaborating with small minority owned businesses.

  • Five members of One Community united attended a two-day leadership training in Mississippi at the end of January 2024 with folks from multiple states.

  • In addition to our ongoing events, this upcoming election year will have OCU educating and encouraging voters and candidates to focus on the issues in our community to further our mission.
