Michael Stevens replied to the topic YGL-LA: African American history month and continued inspiration in the forum Young Government Leaders LA 7 years, 3 months ago
Thanks for the reminder Tayo! I think it’s easy for people to point out notable figures in history that inspire, and we should definitely recognize them, but we can also take closer looks at our own families. Our YGLers seem to be well educated with great careers. Somewhere back in time, a family member most likely made good choices and faced obstacles with the tenacity and bravery you mention, getting us to where we are today. Your post reminds me of that someone in my family.
I can’t wait for the diversity panel session at NextGen+ Los Angeles on April 22nd! It will be awesome to hear similar stories with a government twist from representatives of diverse government groups in LA.
