The Community Race Relations Coalition is involved with many additional programs and activities. Just a few include the following:
"DINNER AND A MOVIE" DISCUSSIONS
Three or four times a year, The Community Race Relations Coalition hosts "Dinner and
a Movie" in the St. Alban’s Episcopal Church parish hall, 305 N. 30th Street at West Waco Drive in Waco. The films chosen for these events are intended to bring McLennan County residents from all backgrounds, education levels, and social outlooks together for positive discussions about how individual citizens can work together for unity, progress, and advancement for everyone.
The event is free and open to all, but reservations are required.
Call (254) 717-7903 or email to reserve a space or to ask questions. Dinner is provided by the CRRC board, with donations accepted.

CRRC QUARTERLY MEETINGS
The Community Race Relations Coalition holds open meetings four times a year. They are open to the public, and feature panel discussions, speakers, and other programs of general interest to the CRRC membership and the public at large. Check our What's NEW! page for upcoming Quarterly Meeting schedule.
CELEBRATION OF CULTURES
At least once yearly, the CRRC invites members and non-members to get to know fellow citizens to get to know their neighbors with interesting ethnic and national backgrounds. Past meetings have featured up-close-and-personal conversations with people from Iran, Polynesia, South America, the Near East, Vietnam, and other exciting places.
