2023 has been off to a speedy start, with February just days away! February is home to Black History Month, a time to reflect and celebrate Black history, as well as uplift the contributions of Black activists who power our democracy. I want to be clear: Black history is American history, and it should be encompassed in every aspect of our lives as we continue to build a League that is representative of an inclusive democracy. I encourage Leagues to share in educating their communities and themselves as we celebrate and honor the ongoing contributions of Black Americans this February. Leagues interested in sharing resources for Black History Month can find our blogs, graphics, webinars, and more on the League Management Site.
It’s hard to believe that we are less than one month away from celebrating our 103rd birthday! On February 14, we’ll honor our legacy through a “People
Powered League” Day of Action. Through action, advocacy, storytelling, and more, Leagues throughout our country will commemorate our history and uplift the work they are doing in their communities. Thank you to the Leagues who have already shared their events with us — I cannot wait to celebrate with you all! If your League is planning an event for our birthday, I strongly encourage you to register your activity and refer to our birthday toolkit for pre-made graphics, organizing tips, and more.
And don’t forget; I’ll be joining fellow League leaders and our CEO, Virginia Kase SolomÓn, for a virtual birthday pep rally! I hope to see you there.
In other League news, I want to remind you to make the appropriate updates to reflect active membership in the Roster Manager Portal by Tuesday, January 31. More information on how to update your League roster can be found in the business section of this newsletter. For any questions or login issues, please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you for all that you do.
Working with you and for you every day.
