The Juanita J. Craft Civil Rights House and Museum located at 2618 Warren Avenue will open to the public in early 2023. In the spirit of Juanita J. Craft who dedicated her life to fighting for human rights and her belief that individuals should find ways to continuously improve the quality of their life, Community Engagement Coordinator, Kendall Ferguson, collaborated with South Dallas residents to develop The 2618 Project and its core programs:Β Let’s Get It Started Book Club, Craft Community Club, The Instagram Healthy Choice Food ClubΒ andΒ Music of the Civil Rights Listening and Discussion Series.

The 2618 Project encourages participants to make a list of positive lifestyle changes they can do every year to improve the quality of their life. There are small steps everyone can take to make life more enjoyable such as establishing healthy routines, minimizing stress, and learning a new skill.
