Finding Value in Diversity in Our Divided Society

In an era when our county is divided practically on every front (healthcare, public education, religion, immigration, natural disasters, etc.), there has never been a greater need for the role for the nonprofit organizations. We are the sector that binds. As Texans who believe in and practice philanthropy, we are best positioned to address many of these challenges today head-on. Alphonce J. Brown, Jr., ACFRE will reflect on AFP and you can make a difference in a diverse environment within your sphere of influence.

Venue: Arlington Hall at Lee Park
