“Everybody can be great… because everybody can serve.” In making that statement, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. recognized the power we all have within us to enact change. Service allows individuals to connect human-to-human in the face of injustice and to embody the change they would like to see in the world. This Thursday, June 25th at 12 ET on Zoom, Mr. Antoine L. Battle will lead an interactive discussion on service and solidarity. Over the course of the event you will:
- Learn how and why service and volunteerism are playing a critical role in the COVID-19 disease pandemic.

- Explore ways we can unite to fight against COVID-19 and issues that have been exacerbated by the pandemic
- Hear personal examples from lived experience
