Continental Breakfast & Presentation Event
Each January and February we are reminded of and celebrate those who pioneered the Civil Rights era. Most of our history books, annual celebrations, and recognitions include Martin Luther King Jr., Rosa Parks and John Lewis, to name a few. They drove not only the days’ national conversations, galvanizing work and media reporting but many laws and freedoms that exist today.
While some progress has been made, we have not attained the principles, equities, inclusions, and opportunities of those who sacrificed their minds, hearts, bodies, and very lives. So, the work must continue – with all intentionality and commitment to supporting greater equity and inclusion driven by diverse identities, perspectives, and lived and professional experiences to close the remaining gaps in:
- Access to opportunities and systems that benefit all
- Diverse mental and physical health care to thrive
- Wealth gaps in communities of color as gateways to upward mobility*
To achieve this, we must challenge and change the systems of marginalization and oppression which are rooted historically and remain in existence today. For this, we need system shakers and changemakers from all walks of life – community – to engage in active allyship with all courage and steadfastness.
