PASS THE MICROPHONE
RUNWAY TO REGENERATION: PASS THE MICROPHONE
Location: Zoom Online Event
Time: 6:00pm Pacific Time
We join with millions of other voices in condemning systemic and violent racism and the recent deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and far too many other members of the Black community. We are each called to do the work - rooting out and dismantling racism and white supremacy alongside all forms of oppression and all roots of system failure. As business leaders and consumers, we hold enormous power, our work shapes and defines how we engage with each other, and we must use our platform to bring about positive change in our communities. While our stakeholders have been tackling issues such as environmental justice, economic development, poverty, sustainability, and business as a force for good, we must do more.
