Community For The Cause
Tonight we had community meal at the urban house. For the first time, uu staff & board of directors, broke bread with our single moms & their children. Everyone brought a dish to share and we all sat down to be close to our families, our mission, our cause.
During the evening I heard heartwarming familiar sounds like the laughter of kids blowing bubbles, shrills of excitement of a child running through the house. The kids looked like they were authentically excited to see us all there.
It is my hope that this proximity will motivate our leaders. I hope that by sitting close to the families that we’ll make the best decisions, on their behalf.
In the midst of our negative and hate filled world, urban university is shining its light to let our families know that we are their community, their posse.
That’s how we roll.
