When an idea’s time has come transformation occurs. Why is now the time for community transformation? We’ve made hard fought gains in equality over the last 70 years and have become somewhat complacent. Now with overt prejudice, Jim Crow, and gained rights being torn away, we are waking up to the fact that if we don’t act now we will have lost any chance to act later. Therefore, many of us are banding together to reverse the current flow. Here are our founding Partners In Purpose. Support them with donations of your time, talent, and money. Each of us pulling together towards the same goals are a powerful force for change.
