Volunteerism: A Bold Conversation — How to Take Actionable Steps Towards Equity


In case you missed it — Check out this panel discussion in the video below.


On Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day this year, our Founder + CEO Seena Hodges moderated a panel discussion hosted by HandsOn Twin Cities to discuss ways volunteering can be an effective tool for creating an equitable community. The informative and insightful discussion featured local thought leaders Johnathan Palmer, Executive Director of the Hallie Q. Brown Community Center, Laverne McCartney Knighton, Area Development Director for UNCF, and Nadege Souvenir, Senior Vice President of Operations & Learning for the Saint Paul & Minnesota Foundation.

This amazing panel discusses avoiding "voluntourism", the connection to education and action, how to be an anti-racist volunteer, and more.
