This month’s webinar is called “The Power of Voice in Addressing Race Equity in Sports: A Conversation with Daryl Homer”. Beyond athletics, participation in sports builds character, teaches strategic thinking, leadership skills and offers opportunities to take risks and build resiliency. On March 24 at 1 p.m. Eastern, join Points of Light and Morehouse College for a conversation that explores race equity in sports from little league to college to the Olympics. Our speakers will discuss access, representation, and the power of voice. Attendees will learn about the actions that colleges, corporations and athletes are taking to change the game and how they can be involved in breaking barriers.
