On behalf of The California Endowment (TCE), Define American and Southern California Grantmakers, our sincere gratitude to all who joined the conversation between Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and founder of Define American, Jose Antonio Vargas, and TCE President and CEO Dr. Robert K. Ross. It was a raw and powerful conversation on the urgency of breaking down silos in order to deepen solidarity amongst directly impacted and diverse communities, including the crucial work of building bridges even within our own families impacted by inter-generational trauma.
Thank you to Jose, guest speaker Cristela Alonzo and audience members who shared their truth and journey that continues to reverberate and inspire communities.
