LANSING- “Change isn’t change until it hits the pocket.”

“There is a huge difference between equality and equity. These were the words of Angela Waters Austin, the founder, president and chief executive officer of One Love Global, Inc. as she tried to convince the Lansing School Board to accept the Lansing region’s My Brother’s Keeper Challenge, MY Lansing, during the Feb. 5 school district board meeting. My Brother’s Keeper is an initiative President Obama announced in February 2014 for smaller communities to work towards improving the lives and opportunities for young men of color. Board President Peter Spadafore said the board will consider joining MY Lansing among other partnerships.
