If Nothing Changes, Nothing Changes
This Making Change presentation will spark conversations and discussions around diversity and inclusion. Through sharing their lived experiences as Black women, Making Change presenters bring a conversation about how Making Change is a lifelong journey. They discuss the Black Lives Matter movement and local initiatives, and how it has impacted them personally and in the community. They will 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 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.
● A local overview of the BLM movement vs a moment
