About the Event

Join us for an inspiring hour as we celebrate Black Philanthropy Month (BPM) in Connecticut through a virtual conversation. Black philanthropy and funding equity are not just about money. Although we are in critical and very challenging times, our panelists will discuss how they live “Black Love in Action” (this year's national BPM theme) daily by sharing their time, ties, and talent through creative philanthropy, business investment, and racial equity advocacy throughout our state.

Panelists: Erik Clemons, CEO and President, CT Center for Arts and Technology (ConnCAT) and CT Community Outreach Revitalization Program (ConnCORP) Dr. Chaka Felder-McEntire, Ed.D., Founder and Executive Director, Higher Heights Youth Empowerment Programs, Inc./CT College Access Network Ashley Hampton, LCSW, Scholarship Committee Chair, Les Treize, Inc. Andréa Hawkins, Founding Partner, Leading Culture Solutions


Dr. Leon Bailey Jr., MPA, DMIN, SVP for Human Resources and Organizational Culture, The Community Foundation for Greater New Haven
