ABOUT US

Transform 1012 N. Main Street (T1012), is a Texas-based, non-profit coalition of local arts, grassroots, and service organizations and groups: DNAWORKS, LGBTQ SAVES, Opal Lee Foundation, SOL Ballet Folklorico, Tarrant County Coalition for Peace and Justice, The Welman Project, Window to Your World, and the 1012 Youth Council. Our partners include: MASS Design Group, Post L Group, JL Powers & Associates, The Projects Group, SpawGlass, Saira Jasmine Concepts and United Way of Tarrant County.


We represent groups of people in Fort Worth who were targeted by the Ku Klux Klan in the 1920’s, specifically Black, Catholic, Hispanic, Immigrant, Jewish, and LGBTQQ2SPIAA+ populations. 


We invite you to join us on this journey of truth-telling and healing. The project’s success depends on your participation in the process of transformation. 


We are making public our process of building an intentional, co-created leadership culture in the hopes that it will inspire other local and national projects.

“This is an opportunity to connect the past and present, interpret history through the power of place, engage the public in programs that stimulate dialogue on pressing social issues, share opportunities for public action on the issues raised at the site, and promote universal cultures of human rights.”

THE VISION

To transform this monument to hate into a beacon of truth-telling, reconciliation, and liberation for the nation.

 

The Fred Rouse Center for Arts and Community Healing – a reparative justice project –  will honor the life and memory of Mr. Fred Rouse, a Black butcher who was lynched by a White mob in Fort Worth in 1921, by returning resources to the communities that were targeted for marginalization and violence by the Ku Klux Klan.
