We look forward to seeing you soon!

Moments of Resilience

As the world grapples with Covid-19, communities are marching in the streets to express their displeasure and frustration at our country’s inability to deal with our racial inequalities. What started as protests against the killing of George Floyd at the hands of the Minneapolis police has quickly grown to represent the continued senseless killing of African Americans. As the list grows, so does the call for justice and equality for all people.

Tell us your story! No matter how big or small the gesture, we want to hear stories of how communities are supporting each other on a day-to-day basis. Whether it's the teacher who created a virtual story time, the man who sheltered protestors in his house overnight, or the people that are cleaning up vandalism in their neighborhood ; each is a moment of resilience. A moment that reminds us; together, we can conquer adversity, whether made by nature or man.
