We invite you to listen to our podcast (airing 6/30), and please share your thoughts on social as we learn from these amazing women in our community!
Excerpts from the Discussion:
“…programs in different neighborhoods are bringing the neighborhoods into the parks, so that young people will have a care and a concern that what they see will last.”

“So, advocacy is crucial, but advocacy is only part of the ecosystem of making things happen so that it touches real lives.”
“It’s about building relationships first. […] And, trust takes time.”
Jennie Chin Hansen
former President of AARP and Executive Director of OnLok
“… I do feel that our country, as a nation, needs to pay more attention, to have a little bit more equity. It’s easy to say, but very difficult policy changes have to take place; and, we’ve got to continue to advocate for these kinds of things.“
