Amber Beckett and Lala Kelsy-Braide from Making Change will be our special guests on Wednesday, May 19th at 7 p.m. on Zoom. Making Change is a start-up not-for-profit organization of community volunteers, led by a community of Black women. Their presentation will spark conversations and discussions around diversity and inclusion through sharing their lived experiences as Black women. They will discuss the current Black Lives Matter focus and local initiatives, and how it has impacted them personally and in the community. They will also reflect on why Making Change was launched and detail their community work. Meant to move the conversation forward and being mindful of the sensitive nature of the discussion, they will share perspectives and suggestions on becoming an ally and doing self-work around anti-Black racism. A question and answer opportunity will close out the session. Please register to receive the Zoom link; everyone welcome. (Please note: Registrants will be sent a Zoom link by 5 p.m. the day of the presentation.)
