Upcoming Events – Community Partnerships

We’ve been partnering with a number of non-profit organizations in the area and have some events we’ll supporting in the coming weeks.  You can check out the details of an event happening this Friday and one the following week below.

This Friday we are partnering with the YWCA to Stand Against Racism!

Together we can raise the awareness and work towards minimizing racism within our communities. “[Racism] is not about how you look, it is about how people assign meaning to how you look.” ~Robin D.G. Kelley, Historian

Please join us for an open house on April 30th, 2010 from 12:00 to 1:00 pm.

We’d like to invite you to participate in the following discussion topics:
• Effects of racism in the workplace
• Facts about racism
• What we can do raise awareness

Additionally participants are encouraged to wear orange and black in effort to show their support.

As a company we seek to bring people together across communities, for one common goal – the elimination of racism. Your voice can make the difference!!

We look forward to your participation.
