Join Us October 18th at the California Endowment Center

We are excited to share that Rise Up: A Racial Justice Conference is fast approaching.  We want to encourage you to save the date and register to attend.  Join us on Wednesday, October 18th at the California Endowment Center as we talk about and collaborate on how we can take action to eradicate racial and social injustice.  

This year the theme is Be the Domino.  We will be asking all attendees what they can do to make a difference in the lives of their clients, work environment and community.  We all have the power to effect change, so let’s do it together.
