Reconciliation & Justice Network came up with a great holiday gift idea. Order link in profile bio! ✊🏼🙏🏼💝 "In a polarized world, we believe in creating spaces for all people to thrive. Ubuntu, a South African concept, calls us to understand ourselves in the presence of the other. We hope this t-shirt, designed by Simon Walker, captures the Ubuntu sentiment and serves as a catalyst to provoke and subvert towards a better and more just future together. All profits will benefit @BRAVECommunities, an Austin organization that creates local spaces to grow in awareness, advocacy, and activism.
Thank you @cityofaustintexas#equity office for putting on the inaugural "Equity for All" summit today. Heard some great panelists share their highs and lows working in the space of diversity, equity, and inclusion...and how we each can take the responsibility to make intentional changes in our own lives and in our systems. Congratulations Dr. Stephanie Hawley of @accdistrict for being such an amazing leader in Central Texas and beyond. And, we loved hearing from keynote speaker Glenn Harris, President of @raceforward based in Seattle. #solidarity#justice#equityforall ✊🏼✊🏿✊✊🏽✊🏾✊🏻

In a polarized world, we believe in creating spaces for all people to thrive. #Ubuntu, a South African concept, calls us to understand ourselves in the presence of the other. We hope this t-shirt, designed by Simon Walker, captures the Ubuntu sentiment and serves as a catalyst to provoke and subvert towards a better and more just future together.
The longest-married presidential couple in U.S. history, reunited again. 💞 @abc13houston RIP, President Bush. 💝

Girls of all races need strong, intelligent, kind women leaders to look up to. Thank you @michelleobama for being one of those women girls can and do look up to.

We loved spending the day with the young future leaders of over 65 middle schools of Central Texas. Thank you @adlaustin for another successful year hosting No Place for Hate Youth Summit. Empowering the youth to recognize and stand up to prejudice and hate when they see it. And, we loved seeing our gifted friends at @cometry kicking off the summit! ✌🏽👊🏼✊🙌🏿🙏🏼❤💙💚💛🧡💜🖤💝 #noplaceforhate
We have hosted free monthly events all-year-round to Build Relationships Awareness Voices and Engagement in Austin (and beyond). The inaugural BRAVE Fest this past April was such a hit, that we will have BRAVE Fest19 on February 10th at The Belmont from 3-9pm. This will be a community celebration with local artists, social businesses, and nonprofits to unite together for love, diversity, and multi-culturalism.
Please consider this #givingtuesday as an opportunity to help us continue our community programs, thank you!
