Celebrating Black History Month.

V Team,

2020 marks the 150th anniversary of the 15th Amendment, which gave Black Americans the right to vote, making this February’s celebration of black history even more meaningful.

As the Executive Sponsor of the employee resource groups – Black Resource Association of Verizon Employees (BRAVE) at Verizon and Black Organizers, Leaders, and Doers (BOLD) at Verizon Media – I am proud to announce this year’s Black History Month theme: “Elevate and Empower!”

With 2020 being an important election year, the theme is a fitting one. BRAVE and BOLD are planning meaningful and impactful opportunities tied to voting education, voter registration, and the 2020 census.

Please join me on Feb 20 for our Black History Month webcast that will include valuable conversations with guest speakers. Watch for the invitation.

BRAVE and BOLD are working to merge into one employee resource group this year. Together, they will bring an even greater impact to the business, our employees and the community.

This is how we move the world forward together.
