There’s something thrilling about starting a new chapter of a story. You carry with you all that has happened to this point while eagerly anticipating the new layers forming ahead. That’s how we at Surge feel right now.
We are celebrating the close of a deeply inspiring recruitment season, in which we met and developed relationships with emerging leaders of color across multiple cities seeking to join the Surge experience for 2022. We saw the graduation of our first cohort of Indianapolis fellows and got to fund some of their incredible Freedom Dreams projects. The Surge movement is vibrant, pulsing and teeming with brilliant energy.
Now we look ahead. We are currently building for the years to come, poring over what we know, and having the challenging, rewarding conversations about what this movement can and should be. Our national and local boards are growing, our reach is extending and our vision is solidifying.
As you read this newsletter, please join us in turning the page. Share these stories with all of the people you feel will be inspired to see this work and impact. We are entering a new chapter, and we are excited to continue the Surge story.
Always in community,
The Surge Leadership Team
