“Some people want it to happen, some wish it would happen, others make it happen.”

– Michael Jordan

As we pause to reflect on this past year and all the many ways RISHM has been able to grow through your support, we wanted to take a moment to express our most sincere thanks. The important work RISHM does around commemorating the lives of the enslaved as well as open dialogues for racial understanding and healing would not be possible without you. Help us continue our work in 2024 & beyond. – Charles & the RISHM Team
