Equality in Life, part 2: Business and Growth

As our beloved Tallahassee/Leon County community joins others around the nation in the important unfinished work to make the promise of equality a reality, constructive conversation helps to illuminate the path to progress and meaningful change.

The Equality in Life series is part of our Local Color Project, made possible by the generous support of Bank of America.

As our beloved Tallahassee/Leon County community joins others around the nation in the important unfinished work to make the promise of equality a reality, constructive conversation helps to illuminate the path to progress and meaningful change. In that spirit, a group of community leaders share diverse perspectives about critical and relevant issues in a special series of Town Hall presentations — presented by The Village Square in partnership with Bethel Missionary Baptist Church, the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Northern District of Florida, and Sachs Media Group.

Part 2 in our series focuses on “Equality in Life: Business and Growth,” facilitated by Heidi Otway, President of SalterMitchell PR.

You can view the results of the Sachs Media Group Survey on equality in our hometown here. And please watch this truly extraordinary video (made by local high school students) about poverty in Tallahassee mentioned by Ms. Talethia Edwards during Part 1 of the series.

Our gratitude to Bank of America for making Local Color possible.

Local Color would not have been possible this year without generous financial support from The Bank of America Foundation, which invested over $200 million annually to support pressing community needs. We thank them for making it possible that — in this time of so much separation between us — this community gathers.
