Community Service Initiative (CSI): We Need Equity To Build Communities
What are some objectives you have as a titleholder? “We Need Equity To Build Communities” aims to break down systemic barriers in our society and within the Miss America organization. I believe Education is the most powerful tool that can be use to drive a culture of equity, so I’ve worked with a number of schools on curriculum, after school programs, and accessibility to resources. Next, community outreach and civic engagement. I have partnered with Grassroots organizations and I plan to speak to more throughout my year of service. Through them I can be an advocate for change and get more people involved in voting and organizing. Last recruiting girls from all walks of life to participate in the Miss America organization, because I believe we all deserve a seat at the table.
