Nov 28, 2017
This year, on Tuesday, November 28, Equality NC is participating in #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving. Today and throughout the rest of the year you will see and hear stories about the dreams of folks in our communities. Dreams of visiting a compassionate doctor. Dreams of freely walking down a street. Dreams of attending school or going to work without the fear of constant bullying or harassment.
My name is Summer Wisdom and I serve on the Equality NC Foundation Board because I have dreams too.
"I dream of a world where everyone can live, without fear, as their true selves - and that shouldn’t have to be a dream; that should be a reality."
In my time on the ENC Foundation Board I have seen firsthand how our work and people impact our communities from Asheville to Wilmington. I have heard ENC speak for the marginalized throughout our state. I have supported ENC’s efforts to offer platforms for change to elevate the voices of the ignored from our most vulnerable regions.
Now I’m reaching out to you today to ask you to support Equality NC and #GivingTuesday is one way you can help.
A gift from you today will place us in a better position to help and advocate for our communities tomorrow - but most importantly, will be an investment in our people. If we cannot invest in our own communities, who else will?
We encourage you to join the movement and visit equalityncfoundation.org to learn how you can make a difference and turn these dreams into reality.
