"Every day, we wake up with a choice--a choice of what kind of human being we want to be, what kind of world we want to create and what kind of action we'll take to create it. In making these choices, we form movements. In making these choices, we change the world."
We are at a transformational moment in the nation's history. For the first time, births in communities of color (Hispanics, Asians, Native Americans, African Americans) have become a majority. Demographic changes in the racial and age makeup of the country imply enormous transition for communities across the country and for the national identity. The Embrace Project is the heart of Pramila's new fellowship work, to understand the impact, challenges and opportunities of these changes and to find new ways to harness the potential of this new diverse America.
