Partnering for a Better Tomorrow (PBT)
Organized in June 2020, as a call-to-action following the death of George Floyd, a group of Change-makers from across the nation, came together to discuss issues, design strategies and implement change through their vast network of community leaders, organizations and thought-leaders that all agree that, ENOUGH is ENOUGH!
Though Floyd’s death was horrific, at least it appears it wasn't in vain. As you can see from news casts all over the world, Geoge’s death has sparked reactions and conversations for change like never before. In addition to millions continuing to lead international protests, there are conversations to defund police forces; in Washington D.C. Sen. Mitt Romney became the first known Republican senator to join demonstrations; NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell issued a video statement saying "we were wrong for not listening to NFL players earlier" who were protesting police brutality.
Even with several changes transpiring, WE CAN’T BECOME COMPLACENT! Instead of continually being reactive after another life is lost, we must remain proactive for real systemic change to occur -- for instance, initiating effective conversations for cultural awareness and race relations between law enforcement, community leaders and organizations.
As a call-for-action, on June 6, 2020, an international virtual summit was held with more than 70 registered LEADERS, BUSINESS OWNERS, NONPROFITS and CONCERNED RESIDENTS, from Pittsburg to Paris. All uniting from various countries, backgrounds, ethnicities and industries, everyone came together as ONE VOICE to DEMAND CHANGE! See the informative video below.
