We’ve created this newsletter in the spirit of true community cohesion, learning, and growth. Each section of this newsletter is dedicated to one of the pillars of our community – Youth Development, Risk Management and Diversity, Equity & Inclusion. We have also included a reading list and “watchlist” in the spirit of #continuouslearning during this time of #socialdistancing and will be highlighting a poem & artist each month.
In honor of Black History Month, we are highlighting Black voices, authors, and stories in this issue. We also want to bring attention to the recent increase in hate crimes against the East Asian community and have included recent coverage in our Diversity, Equity & Inclusion section.
