Class of 2021,

Overcoming obstacles isn’t easy. We’re all figuring out this thing called life as we go! Take a moment and savor your reward after all of those late nights of studying, the fun you missed out on, and the lack of sleep.

Being a graduate doesn’t mean that you know everything — but you are better prepared to learn what life has in store for you. Congratulations!

We’re teaming up with barbershops and salons to put your #SheaMoisture dollars to work where it’s most needed—protecting Black people against COVID-19!

The Shots at the Shop initiative is a collaboration between the Black Coalition Against COVID, SheaMoisture, the University of Maryland Center for Health Equity and the Biden Administration to increase COVID-19 vaccine awareness, education and engagement. Up to 1,000 barbershops and beauty salons across the country will receive a $1,000.00 grant from SheaMoisture to participate in the initiative, which really asks shops to do four things:

1.       Attend a short, four-hour course with Dr. Stephen Thomas of the University of Maryland Center for Heath Equity to learn more about COVID-19, vaccinations, and the role barbershops and beauty salons have historically played in communities to increase health and well-being.

2.       Have materials about COVID-19 and the vaccinations available within your shop.

3.       Talk to your customers about COVID-19 vaccines. We’re not asking that you convince folks to get vaccinated, but simply that you ask people about the vaccines, answer common questions, and refer them to resources to help them make the best decision for themselves, their families and their community.

4.       Work with the Shots at the Shop team to schedule a vaccination event in or near the shop before July 4th.
 
For more information and to sign up to be one of the 1,000 participating shops, register today at https://www.sheamoisturefund.com/ .

Every person and organization in a community can participate in the prevention of child abuse by putting one of the fifty-one Advancing Parenting bumper stickers on their cars or by making the stickers available to the public. Offices, agencies, businesses, and organizations can put sets of the stickers in holders and place them on tables and counters so customers can choose one or more for their cars. Parenting messages on vehicles are a unique and powerful way to educate everyone about parenting. Just one will be read thousands of times. Visit www.advancingparenting.org. Please share. 🙂

Some fellow board members and friends at the UIH Family Partners 5K walk and run!
Had the distinct pleasure of attending the Women In Development luncheon at Tre Piani restaurant listening to the Executive Director of UIH Family Partners, Karen Jenkins-Mims speak on the topic of "collaboration." We also would like to shout out our newest board member Stephen Fitzpatrick for joining a room full of women in support of Karen! Some collaborations in the community sustainability world are short term & some are long term.
Thank you to all the board members and staff of UIH Family Partners for another fabulous Platinum Dad's event.
