Be the Change #10 – Defend Minorities

If you’re concerned about minority rights, click on this link to a site that lists national Civil Rights organizations that could use your donations of time or money.

If you are located in the Pittsburgh area, this link will take you to the Just Harvest site, where they list their local Civil Rights allies.  My friend Theresa Orlando serves on the board of Just Harvest. This wonderful organization connects needy people to food resources and advocates for sound anti-hunger policies.

If you are interested in Diversity education, here is a list of resources courtesy of my friend and former manager at PNC, Vincent Johnson, who has done work in this field:
