Event description

Description

Do you know what happened on December 1st, 1955?

That is the date Rosa Parks refused to move!

Now, I don't know what would have happened on November 30th or even December 2nd, but on December 1st, Rosa was tired! Not physically tired – No, she was tired of giving in! She was done! On THAT day she made a decision TO NOT MOVE. And do you know what? Her decision created a movement that changed us FOREVER!

Come celebrate with us!

This event will be life changing! We’ll be awarding some very special individuals who’ve taken the challenge of changing their families’ lives this year including our Financial Independence University graduates and our Financially Independent Youth graduates. So many people this year have had their ’12-1-55’ Moment and they deserve to be recognized for the powerful impact that that decision has had on their lives.

Councilwoman Margo Sommerville will host this amazing event where we will be recognizing local pioneers who became tired of giving in, who had had enough, and who were ready to make a change.
