At only six years old, Ruby Bridges became an icon in the civil rights movement when she stepped foot into William Frantz Elementary School – single-handedly initiating the desegregation of New Orleans’s public schools in 1960.
60 years later, in Lane County, Oregon and across the nation, we are still fighting for racial justice, with much still to do.
As part of our 75th anniversary celebration, join United Way of Lane County for a conversation with Ruby Bridges about using your voice for racial justice and how you can advance equity and inclusion in Lane County - by investing in and helping shape United Way's new Racial Justice Fund.
Tickets are $10/person; a portion of ticket sales will be invested in this new fund.
• To purchase a block of tickets, send names and email addresses of attendees to email@example.com.
• Sponsors and Lane County teachers attending with their class can access their free tickets by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org with their name and company/school name.
If you'd like to make a direct gift to the Racial Justice Fund today, visit www.unitedwaylane.org/donate.
