Category: Removing Our Blinders

Join nonprofit colleagues Anita Case, Executive Director of Affinity Health Center and Tim Veeck, Executive Director of Habitat for Humanity of York County, as they candidly share their experiences of participating in the Together SC's Race Equity Lens Cohort facilitated by Dr. Heather Hackman.

Participating in this eight-month program led to a collaboration between their organizations to advance racial equity in their community. 

While early in the collaboration they have already had some wins and  believe there is potential for more impactful outcomes. 

Don't miss this opportunity to be inspired and learn how to apply their experience to race equity work in your community.
