"We must never forget that Black History is American History." - Yvette Clarke, U.S. Congresswoman.
For Black History Month, we invite you to learn more about Black heritage, Black trailblazers, and challenge yourself to get involved in the fight towards racial equity and social justice. If you would like to get more involved in chapter efforts towards Diversity & Inclusion, reach out to our D&I Director Nicole Brown at firstname.lastname@example.org.
