THE NEED FOR CHANGE IS NOW

We live in a world where divisions and poverty affect everyone. The COVID-19 pandemic and global civil unrest have forced a reckoning with long-standing systemic racism and oppression that has manifested in deep and predictable disparities in our community.

 

When we unite as changemakers, we can disrupt systems and address the challenges no one can solve alone.
