Dear NewsOne Readers:
With Barack’s second inauguration just a few days away, I wanted to take a moment to check in with all of you here at Interactive One, to reflect on the past year, and to look toward the work that remains.
First, I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for everything you did to inform people about the issues facing our country and the importance of making our voices heard in the election. You all did so much to help us all become more involved and engaged in our democracy—no matter who we were voting for—and that’s something you should be very proud of.
I especially enjoyed talking with Abena Agyeman-Fisher about the election, life at the White House, and all the issues that come up for Moms across the country. It really was a great conversation!
And now, as we look forward, there are so many ways that we can continue to engage with each other and our fellow citizens. For example, on Saturday, January 19th, we’ll be hosting my favorite event of inauguration weekend – the National Day of Service – when people from all across the country will come together to volunteer in their communities and honor the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
