Community of Color Honors Awards 2015!
“Imagine a place where each time you entered a room you saw people who represented the diversity of a community. Imagine that in this place there are people of all ages, races, colors, and backgrounds, focused on a common goal or idea. Imagine that in this place there are visuals, music and movement that reflect the various cultures of the people in the room. Imagine that at some point each year people in the greater community would gather to focus their collective energies on celebrating a universal gift that surpasses our exterior and connects our heart and souls. Imagine that this place is Auburn, NY, right now, this moment, today.”
