For years, a lot of us have been talking about the disparities in homeownership rates, the lack of Latino representation in the boardrooms and C-suites of America’s largest corporations, the wealth and income gaps, etc. These are real issues that frankly have not seen much progress in the last few decades. On the heels of the Black Lives Matter movement, these disparities are starting to work their way into the national dialogue. A number of major corporations have made commitments to invest in communities of color and aggressively diversify their organizations from the top down. For those of us who have spent years advocating for these sorts of things, we need to get our acts together. Specifically, we need to get organized with what we want and we need to get our community to rally around those things. Sol Trujillo and I have been working on something for L’ATTITUDE that is audacious, and yet achievable. It would be an absolute shame to waste this unique moment of awareness in our country by not being clear and consistent about the things we want as a community. Now is not the time to be shy. Now is not the time to be polite, and now is not the time to be bickering about things that don’t matter. This is our time to “rise up” as a united force and make a quantum leap forward for ourselves and our children. Don’t miss L’ATTITUDE 2020!
