Advancing Racial Equality
Let’s keep Racial Equality Top of Mind
This time there is renewed energy, sense of purpose, stronger will and compassion among people, for social change, and a more precise focus on the need for mindful and meaningful action.
Therefore, I have combined my entrepreneurial spirit, the Vermarje’s mission, executive government leadership, and my civic engagement work to do three things:
- Illuminate the message and maintain the momentum for racial equity
- Financially support organizations that support this movement
- Bring like-minded leaders and advocates together to develop strategies that produce mindful and meaningful results that lead government to advance racial equality.
The model for these teas comes from the suffragist women of California in their organizing of the 1911 election on women’s suffrage. To support their mission, the group hosted afternoon tea parties, selling Equality, Suffrage, and Votes for Women teas throughout California. As a result, these efforts raised awareness and revenue for the women’s right to vote movement and encouraged women to run for office. I proposed using a similar model. Specifically, I have created Vermarje’s EqualiTea private-labeled teas for sales and distribution. Also, with partners, I will host a series of interactive EqualiTea Salons.
Vermarje’s EqualiTea private-labeled teas will be offered on-line, in retail shops, food markets, and to civic and professional organizations. Vermarje will donate a portion to non-profit organizations that serve as advocates and leaders of social and economic justice.
