Saline Supports our Community is a non-profit founded in 2020 for the purpose of creating awareness of, offering education on, and providing support for: underrepresented, disenfranchised, and marginalized members of our community.

About SSOC

Saline Supports is a movement dedicated to making Saline a place of mirrors and windows – where residents and visitors can see themselves and others in their neighbors, teachers, students, business owners, pastors, representatives and more.

It aims to:

  • Celebrate the diversity that helps make Saline a wonderful place to live, with an effort towards sustaining and increasing diversity.

  • Advocate and educate around activities and policies that promote and build an inclusive community.

  • Empower and increase visibility of disenfranchised and underrepresented communities.

  • Organize activities that raise awareness of inclusivity issues and create a welcoming environment for everyone.
