IMPACT Celebrates Young Professionals During MLK Weekend

Young professionals were acknowledged and celebrated during Inauguration weekend by IMPACT, a nonprofit organization focused on fostering civic engagement. The organization held numerous events throughout the weekend, including a day of service to beautify the area surrounding the MLK Memorial. IMPACT also hosted a Jazz Brunch to recognize the accomplishments of community activists—also known as “Champions of Change”—and later co-hosted the Hip Hop Ball II along with Russell Simmons’s Hip-Hop Summit Action Network.
The weekend was filled with distinguished and celebrity guests, including Department of Interior Secretary Ken Salazar, Civil Rights activist Dolores Huerta, Lala Anthony, 2 Chainz, and John Legend. IMPACT is known for working with businesses and high-powered leaders to host lectures series, workshops, and strategic networking. Most of the programs are geared towards uplifting young professionals who possess an interest in giving back to the community. (IMPACT)
