Gain Perspective from Dr. Hedy Lemar Walls

With Fourth of July, our nation celebrates freedom.  This year the word “freedom” has been discussed even more and what does that mean to each person. After George Floyd’s murder and the ongoing peaceful demonstrations, we heard voices sharing that now is the time to create systems that are fair and just so everyone experiences the freedoms that all of us should have each and every day. Racial inequities and injustices can not be tolerated in our workplaces, homes, neighborhoods or communities.

There is an opportunity for all of us to get more educated and enlightened together through listening and learning. The YMCA Equity Innovation Center is here for you to intentionally engage you in thought-provoking experiences and resources that will expand your knowledge and skills.
