“The goal that we have in sponsoring this program is to encourage people to work together to bring about positive and constructive change in their communities.’
“What have you done as an organization to make a difference in your community? We want you to share what you are doing with others so that all of us can encourage you to continue in your works of community advancement, sustenance, and progress. We all know that if a community suffers and is not supported than all the individuals within that community will also be affected. This is why we all need creative and caring strategies to make our communities better and stronger.
“One of the best ways to do this is to spotlight examples of people already making a difference and then using that spotlight and example to encourage our young people to become more active and involved in social justice progress.
