Community Voices: Our Continued Support, March 2022

As part of our continued efforts to support our community and our commitment to be better allies, we’re proud to lend our platform each week to individuals seeking change. Community Voices was born as a platform to dive into various important topics affecting the community, driving attention to ways we can create change, and pursuing action by donating funds to organizations putting in the work. Each week we welcome a new guest on our Instagram to help us speak to these important issues, and profile a charitable organization of their choosing that is making an impact. Over the last year and a half, we’ve gained a lot of momentum, and have hosted dozens of guests. Now, nearly 2 years in, almost 100 guests featured and organizations funded, we’re proud to keep the energy going. Here are some of the incredible guests who have joined us so far in March 2022:

Episode 93: Wesley Snipes

The film legend joins us to chat about how his time in art school influenced his career, how a missed opportunity in Beat Street motivated him to start doing commercials, broadway & daytime tv work. He also tells us about the significance of dance & martial arts, and how he believes being multi disciplined can ground you in all things. This belief inspires his community work with @newbreedlifearts.
