Elizabeth Shillue shows love for the community through her anti-racism activism
by Ginny Bixby
Elizabeth Shillue didn’t plan to become an activist when she moved to Charlottesville, but today, it’s her life’s work. The founder of Beloved Community Cville, a local organization focused on anti-racism activism and education, is quick to defer to others’ leadership and stories.
“It’s really important to respect past leadership in the movement for Black lives within Charlottesville, as well as the leadership that’s already established and emerging,” she said.
