The reality is that America is not the land of equality promised at its birth. But we’re working on it. To do this work, we need to explore how services that support our society --- things like education, healthcare, and housing --- were designed. And who they were designed for.
In Rebuilding, an ongoing series from Add Passion & Stir, we talk to leaders from media, restaurants, education, government, and beyond to learn how they’re reimagining and redesigning their industries to make sure everyone feels a sense of belonging.
Over the years, Add Passion & Stir has connected with leaders on topics related to our new Rebuilding series — topics like race, the need for increased support of black-owned businesses, racial disparity in schools, and more. Here are some of the ones that inspired us over the years.
