Now more than ever, we have a global demand for racial and social justice. We recognize that our network of people — the V Team — has the potential to build a more connected and equitable world.  As we channel our pride for progress and continue the march forward by helping others, this is the perfect opportunity to continue efforts towards racial equality while learning and celebrating Black History.

Throughout the month of February, we will honor the rich history of Black people across the world. In addition to merely recognizing Black History, we must bring it to the surface for others to learn it as well. We invite you to join all of the events that Verizon has planned to honor Black History Month, and those who have paved the way for this movement to be more than a moment.

Transcribing history, attending and hosting informational webinars, tutoring students, coaching black-owned small businesses, and sharing stories are just a few ways to make sure that history is not only celebrated and preserved, but that we are setting the stage for history to be made in a more equitable world.

We are more powerful when we stand united in our commitment to equality for all.  We have the tools we need to be the change we want to see in the world. Let's champion that change as one team, the V Team.
