The organization will use marketing, public relations, digital media, special appearances, speaking engagements, town hall meetings, and a plethora of grass-root efforts, surrounding schools, Universities, and other institutions, to become a visible and viable asset and advocate. CARES will provide tools of empowerment for those experiencing and living with indicators that place them at the lower ends of the wealth quintile of America, focusing on racism and inequities against Blacks and other people of color.
