Community Partner Chat: Booker T. Washington Empowerment Network

One of the most rewarding aspects of our community engagement work is the opportunity to partner with many non-profit organizations and support innovative programs that help advance the diverse communities we serve.  In May 2020, we launched our Verizon Community Partnerships Initiative to celebrate community organizations supported by Verizon and highlight their important work. 

Today, we feature Sarah Washington O’Neal Rush, Founder, Booker T. Washington Empowerment Network.

Below we share a conversation on the tremendous legacy of Booker T. Washington, including his fight to receive an education, and how his memory can shape and inspire future generations.
