Celebrating Black-Led Projects

bld power celebrating black led projects

Dear Friends,

Black History Month is a celebration of the accomplishments and achievements of the African American and Black community. We honor the talent, skill and determination of the Black community despite centuries of systemic, anti-Black racism. We are privileged to support Black-led projects as they create a stronger future.

Community Partners is listening, learning and finding ways to center equity and racial justice across our internal and community-facing work. As the new President and CEO, I am energized, inspired and deeply grateful to partner with you all to build and sustain a more equitable and just community.  Please join me in celebrating these Black-led projects that are a part of Community Partners.
