About the webinar: The global pandemic of 2020 highlighted the glaring inequalities that exist between those that have and those that have not. In this webinar presented by Charles Curtis that was recorded live as part of the 2021 MLK Day of Service, we share volunteer tips on how to best advocate for those in our community and bridge the gap between those we serve and those who serve. We encourage all volunteers of every experience level to watch and consider the role we each play in supporting equitable outcomes.
Keep the conversation moving: Please consider sharing this webinar with one friend or family member after watching this #volunteerperspective
