To our next generation leaders. Take charge. Get involved locally.
Business as usual before March 2020 is approaching in many minds. Do not lose the momentum.
Vulnerable communities, vulnerable population. Our communities will continue to get the ‘short end of the stick’, or NO STICK AT ALL.
- Disasters are known to effect disenfranchised and communities of color greater.
- Public Health crisis (COVID-19) effect disenfranchised communities, and zip codes have now identified them even further.
- Individuals in recovery (drug addiction, financial loses, mental and physical health recovery that may lead to homelessness) will continue to increase globally
- Climate Change with environmental ‘injustice’ will raise its head even more in 2021 with the communities mentioned above being bypassed for true equity and wealth from the funding to address the impacts of climate change.
BEMA International cannot step up to the plate with you in your community if you’re not involved.
Get involved. You have nothing to lose.
Be safe, stay healthy.
