Community Voices: New Year, Bigger Impact (Jan. 2023)

As we wrap up the first month of the new year, we continue to strengthen our commitment to community support and allyship for positive change with Community Voices.  Each week we welcome a new guest via Instagram for an important conversation around some of the most important community issues and profile a charitable organization of their choosing to help those significant organizational missions.

The months change, but our dedication stays the same. January 17th, we spoke with LA based rapper/singer/producer/songwriter and grammy nominated artist Blxst. During our discussion, we tapped into his musical career, cherished moments during his musical process and the important of success outside of your own accomplishments.

Blxst is very invested in his hometown community in California. We donated $10k to LA-based Education is Key organization to help their efforts to fundraise and provide scholarships for inner city youth. Check out the full episode below.

January 27th, Boston Celtics Power Forward and Vice President of the National Basketball Players Association, Grant Williams joined for a great conversation.

GW is one of the most interesting athletes in the NBA and our discussion around his many unknown talents and accolades served as the proof. We discussed his experience as a Celtic, self-awareness and improvement, finals appearance and much more.

The Williams family started the Grant Williams Family Foundation, that is dedicated to identifying and promoting opportunities for the next generation to build intergenerational wealth. To keep the mission thriving, we donated $10k to the foundation in support of their efforts.

As January ends and we step into Black History Month, we also touched on the importance of our civil rights leaders and those who lived through some of the toughest times today. Embracing that wisdom and those stories to keep the fight alive in our generation today. Stay tuned to this space to check out the full episode!
