Our chapter partnered with St. John's University's Liberty Partnership Program to facilitate weekly oratorical workshops with a culminating oratorical competition for high school students residing within the Queens County area. The purpose of this oratorical showcase was to inspire our youth to use their voice to affect change in our communities and our world.
The newly established Education Committee shared the real "Alternative Facts" needed in the "Black Lives Matter" movement at its first Town Hall for the Community on January 28, 2017. The Town Hall was designed to support the emotional concerns of our children in the wake of the societal cry for equality and social justice. In addition, our goal was to place the recent string of events in our country into proper context and enlighten children on what they can do as individuals and community members to help end the madness. Many thanks to our esteemed panelist.
