What does power mean to me?
"Having the ability to sit at the table, make sound decisions, carry influence and bring about positive change in whatever it is that you’re doing."
What excites me about the Dr. Frank E. Boston Black Justice Fund?
"Spreading knowledge and awareness on the positive legacy of Dr. Frank E. Boston, a local Black Leader who has accomplished so much that has gone untold. Also seeing that there will be funding and capacity building resources awarded to deserving organizations in the community who spend endless hours in the trenches but are often given very little consideration and opportunities when they arise."
