OVERVIEW

The “Emerge” campaign aims to foster inspiration and hope, acknowledging not just the impact of the intersections of COVID-19 and systemic racism in America, but the innate strength and resilience of people of color challenged by both pandemics. Fellows in the Guild, a workforce development curriculum for citizens returning from incarceration, were paired with a writing coach to develop and polish their original PSAs.
