Nonprofit Leaders Call - Facing Race Together: "I Am Not Alright"

Wednesday, June 10, 2020
12:00 PM - 1:00 PM (EDT)

Together SC hosts weekly calls for nonprofit leaders across the state.

Our goal is to provide nonrpofit leaders with the information they need to tackle all that what's happening right now and to lift up and inspire.

These calls take place each Wednesday at noon

This Wedensday, June 10th:

Facing Race Together: I Am Not Alright

Darrin Goss, president and CEO of the Coastal Community Foundation of South Carolina, and Madeleine McGee, Together SC president will discuss Darrin's recent letter, “I am not alright.”  This open and honest letter appeared in the June 8th edition of For Good Connections.

In it, Darrin generously shares with us his personal reactions to recent events and the murder of George Floyd in Minneapolis. 

He makes the case for equity rather than equality, and implores white people to speak up and act now. 

Wednesday's conversation will also discuss the role nonprofit leaders can play.

We also invite you to read "I'm Finally an Angry Black Man" in the New York Times written by SC's own Issac Bailey who wowed so many during his session at the 2020 Facing Race Together Summit. 

Join us to share your thoughts and learn how you can be part of healing 400 years of oppression.

It will take an unrelenting commitment from all of us.
