Giving Tuesday this year is on November 30, and we want to invite your partnership in particular for the good work we are doing with Community Conversations.
Since the summer of 2018 the Community Conversations has been a safe setting for people gather to recognize, understand, appreciate and utilize differences in race, age, gender, class and religion just to name a few. As these differences come together, there is beautiful fruit born.
Using a model developed by VISIONS, Inc., a nationally recognized diversity, equity and inclusion consulting group, the Community Conversations provides tested resources for conflict resolution through an equity lens.
Because of generosity from people like you, we are able to offer these conversations free of charge AND they are more accessible than ever since we are using a virtual meeting space now - allowing people to participate from all over the country.
We tell people when they come: “This is a space where we meet to provide education, support and leader development for people who want to be multicultural change agents in their own setting.”
Your support this giving Tuesday will help us expand the vital leader development aspect of our work.
Your partnership will help us develop leaders who are drawing different people together in beloved community in schools, local government, churches, police departments, and neighborhoods.
Your financial partnership last year made it possible for us to send Meredith to a quarterly support group for leaders practicing this VISIONS model for building multicultural community. This was vital for her work starting the Missing Voices Project for middle and high school students in St Augustine - empowering them to be beloved community change agents among their peers.
This year we continue this good work celebrating building beloved community where the sweet fruit of our authentic selves is revealed.
Thank you for your generous support!
