CREDO Awards & Summit: Take Action
November 11, 2016 @ 8:00 pm - November 12, 2016 @ 3:00 pm
No matter who are life is better when characertized by meaning, impact and community. Yet, few of us get there by accident. It takes group effort and healthy doses of inspiration to take action.
Enter the CREDO Awards & Summit: Take Action. We’ve put together a Friday evening and Saturday event specifically designed to inspire you to action.
FRIDAY at 8PM
Our fifth annual CREDO Awards celebrates twelve people moving toward a life of meaning, impact and community. That night, we’ll also unveil the Orlando Parks Project poster designs. With drinks, hours d’oeuvres and desserts it will be a fun night you don’t want to miss.
SATURDAY at 9AM
PART 1: Listen in as some of our areas most creative and motivated entrepreneurs pitch to our Rally Makers. With up to 20k and mentorship on the line, they’ll present their unique, self-sustaining solutions to real social, economic or environmental problems. Their passion and work will inspire you to imagine what you can do.
PART 2: We’ll finish the day with Samuel Sinyangwe an inspiring example of someone who’s moved from idea to action and is living with meaning, impact and community. He is a policy analyst and data scientist who works with communities of color to fight systemic racism through cutting-edge policies and strategies.
Sam has supported movement activists across the country to collect and use data as a tool for fighting police violence through and to push for comprehensive policy solutions to end police violence through Campaign Zero. Previously, Sam worked at PolicyLink to support a national network of 61 Promise Neighborhood communities to build cradle-to-career systems of support for low-income families. He also worked with city leaders, youth activists and community organizations develop comprehensive agendas to achieve quality education, health, and justice for young black men.
