The deep racial divides and tragedies facing communities across the country today echo the struggles for equity and social justice of the Civil Rights era. We invite you to join IEL, in partnership with The Freedom ’64 Project, on the Civil Rights Bus Tour and take a journey through history, to both reflect and engage in a meaningful dialogue about how to make a positive social change in our communities and organizations.
