Special thanks also to Jasmine Smith for doing a wonderful job as Moderator and Interviewer for our virtual forum, “The Power of the Platform: Raising Your Voice and Awareness” with guests Trey White of WGCI Radio and Jahmal Cole, Founder of MY BLOCK MY HOOD MY CITY. Great job, Jasmine!! Thank you Yolanda Payne for gathering videos of our children telling us about their heroes and compiling them into an amazing PSA project!! Awesome job, Yolanda! Our Mother Members fully supported all of the events and community service efforts. The goal was to give our chapter days of events that not only spoke to Dr. King’s principles, but to make an impact. It’s greatly appreciated!
