The group will be reviewing, discussing and revising our Sub-Committee work plans for this fiscal year, July 2017 to June 2018starting with the end in mind to ensure that our goals and objectives will be outcome-focused.
We will be having a special group led discussion on how our understanding of African American history's affects our current connection to our identity and overall behavioral health: We will be focusing on the Footsteps to Freedom Experience as our framework/foundation for the conversation.
Whether you have had an opportunity to participate on the Underground Railroad or not, you will gain a wealth of inspiration and information from our community leaders panel who will share their personal experience and reflections that will lead us into forming quality objectives and goals for our work ahead for the African American Awareness Sub Committee.
Please reach out to those who you know that have been on the trip to also be in attendance and check out the Footsteps to Freedom Summary Link to get a sense of how moving this educational experience is.
