Mark your calendar. The Greater Orlando CARES organization is sponsoring a Black History Month event this Sunday, February 24, with Attorney Natalie Jackson as the guest speaker.
The event, starting at 4 p.m., will take place at the Well of Hope church at 5230 Indian Hill Road, Orlando, FL 32808.
During the event, organizers plan to recognize the efforts of several of its mentors and mentees and present a tribute to Trayvon Martin. There will be live music, poetry and mime.
Jackson, a Sanford native and one of the attorneys for Trayvon Martin’s family, will speak and then conduct a Q&A session, organizers say. She is nationally known, especially for her work as an advocate for women and children as well as a criminal defense attorney.
Greater Orlando (GO) CARES is affiliated with the National CARES Mentoring Movement, which is dedicated to recruiting and connecting mentors with local youth.
