Torre White Garrison is the inaugural Reparations Project Director. Torre is a kaleidoscope of roles and talents: a devoted wife, loving mother, prolific author, inspiring radio host, and passionate advocate for social and racial justice, mental health, and labor union rights. In her downtime, Torre embraces the simple joys of life - from good food to thought-provoking documentaries. A true Asheville native, she delights in reading, writing, hiking, shopping, and crafting and fiercely supports buy-local ethics.
In her professional life, Torre made strides in the fight for a more just society. After a decade of Federal Government service and fueled by her passion, Torre founded TW Consulting, a mental health training and consulting firm dedicated to empowering others. She is also an active member of the United Way of Asheville and Buncombe County Community Conversations Committee, the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), and the American Federation of Government Employees (AFGE) Young Organizing Unionists for the Next Generation (Y.O.U.N.G.) and Black Leaders Advancing Change and Knowledge (B.L.A.C.K.) committees. Torre previously served as the Co-Chair of AFGE Y.O.U.N.G., Chair of AFGE B.L.A.C.K., and on the WNC Central Labor Council E-board. Her advocacy efforts also earned her a spot on the prestigious CoThinkk Community Leader awardees list in 2021.
Guided by her understanding of America's inextricable history with racial injustice, Torre states, "It is impossible to examine the history of America and not see the intentional destruction of equality for Black people. In order to reach true equity, we must understand and embrace the importance of reparatory justice and reparations." As the Reparations Project Director, Torre will channel her relentless energy into leading local reparations efforts, ensuring that Buncombe’s Black communities shape their individual and collective futures.
With Torre leading the way, the RSAA is well-positioned to create lasting, transformative change and healing for Black citizens of Buncombe County.
