We fulfill our mission by giving community leaders the knowledge and experiences to be a part of an authentic change in our community. In response to the killing of George Floyd and the most recent national spotlight on systemic racism, our Board of Governors provided a framework for this change. Included in the appeal were four steps: Educate Yourself; Engage in Dialogue; Establish Concrete Actions, and Take Action.
Leadership Tallahassee is pleased to launch the LT 2.0: The Journey to Racial Justice program, chaired by Darby Kerrigan Scott (LT 33) and Malone Smith (LT 35) along with a committee of incredible community leaders.
This 6-month program is a series of experiences and discussions focused on positioning participants to be a part of real change and to stand up against racism and the systemic practices that seek to divide and harm, instead of build and empower. This is accomplished by providing a baseline understanding of the history of racial injustice and by engaging in intentional conversations about how we as a community can and should make progress toward racial justice.
