An inclusive community begins with understanding each other better.

904WARD began in 2015 with a small group of friends who came together to talk openly, challenge each other, support each other, and take action together to build a more inclusive Jacksonville. 

We are an all-volunteer group made up of people from Jacksonville’s private, public, and nonprofit sectors committed to creating a community of inclusion for all of Jacksonville, FL’s residents. 


904WARD creates racial healing and equity through deep conversations and learning, trusting relationships, and collective action.


An end to racism in Jacksonville so all people thrive.
