My Morehouse brother John Jordan and I was awarded the Echoing Green Fellowship to launch a new organization called “Fight For Light”, which is dedicated to building a robust pipeline for 21st century leaders of color. Today, I am emailing you with some exciting updates on our latest accomplishments and upcoming fundraising efforts.
First, It is my honor to invite you and the rest of the Bay Area Morehouse Alumni Network to Fight For Light’s 1st fundraising event with special guest Van Jones on Friday, August 2nd at HUB Oakland located at 1423 Broadway Street, Oakland, CA 94621. Your presence would be an invaluable addition to the program.
We want to make sure that we get Morehouse, Spelman and other HBCU Alumni in the room, so if you know anyone that you think we should connect with, please let us know and we will send them a personal invitation.
The theme of the event will be “Illumination.” During this event, we will discuss the need to increase diversity within the green movement and showcase our vision to illuminate the path for thousands of young leaders attending Historically Black Colleges and Universities across the country.
The evening will commence with a reception from 5:30pm to 6:00pm, followed by the main program and speech by Van Jones with ample time being given for engaging activities and a networking session. Morehouse, Spelman and other HBCU Alumni could purchase tickets now here: http://bit.ly/13akN1G
Fight For Light is also launching a crowd funding campaign to raise $50,000 for the Brianna Ford Fellowship, which is a two-year student leadership development program designed to train students from Historically Black Colleges and Universities to develop creative market-based solutions for social, environmental and economic issues while simultaneously putting them on a fast-track toward social impact careers.
If some folks can’t make the event don’t worry, they could support our crowdfunding campaign here:http://fundly.com/gpcyu00y

Make plans now to join us on Saturday, October 27, from 11:00-2:00pm.
Proceeds from this annual event benefits the National Association our “Morehouse 300” Scholarship Fund established in 2010. To date this fund has raised more than $50,000 and helped more than 30 students with tuition, books, and housing. Our goal is to ensure that every student that enters Morehouse that meets the College’s academic standards is able to graduate from Morehouse.
Currently, we are soliciting monetary sponsorships, in kind donations and silent auction items for this event. Over 20,000 people will converge on the Morehouse campus on October 27th to celebrate our legacy of excellence.
