“To me, Surge is about purposefully and unapologetically endeavoring to right some of the wrongs of the systemic oppression of black and brown people through our education and empowerment. Surge represents an opportunity to build knowledge and network with dynamic leaders of color, who understand that we are uniquely positioned to make impactful change in our communities and that the initial change we must make lies in enhancing ourselves.”
