Update to 8th Annual Social Justice Leadership Summit

In light of the growing concerns regarding the Coronavirus Pandemic and outbreaks around the state, nation and world, the Center for Leadership, Equity and Research (CLEAR) Board has agreed that it is best to postpone the March 20, 2020 “Equity with Intentionality” Social Justice Leadership Summit until further notice. As this is an entirely new and unprecedented challenge for all of us, I ask for your patience as we move forward towards a rescheduling of the event. We will be working on providing funding solutions as necessary. Thank you for your support. All the best, Dr. Ken Magdaleno
