If there are historic giants who walk among us, Ambassador Andrew Young is one of them. As a man who has repeatedly answered America’s call to serve and whose achievements are, quite simply, legendary, his page was written in our history books long ago.
On Monday, Oct. 20, For Richmond cordially invites the public to join us for a free Community Dinner with Ambassador Young, who has dedicated his life to humanitarian service and improving social and economic conditions for all.
The special evening event will be held at Lovonya DeJean Middle School, 3400 Macdonald Avenue, Richmond. Doors open at 6 p.m., with a complimentary buffet dinner being served at 6:30 p.m. After dinner, the program will commence with opening remarks from For Richmond Executive Director Kyra Worthy, followed by the introduction of Ambassador Young, who will address the gathering.
Paramount to Ambassador Young’s remarks that evening will be his insights on how social responsibility within a community—encompassing individuals and industry—can have a profoundly positive impact on that community’s economic development.
According to the Andrew J. Young Foundation, Ambassador Young has always viewed his career through the lens of his first career—that of an ordained minister. His work for civil and human rights alongside Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., his many years in public office as a U.S. Congressman, United Nations Ambassador and Mayor of Atlanta, his advocacy of investment in Africa through GoodWorks International and the establishment of his aforementioned foundation are all in response to his call to serve.
“We are truly honored to welcome Ambassador Young to Richmond and we look forward to his insights on how communities can economically flourish from the seeds of social responsibility,” said For Richmond Executive Director Kyra Worthy. “It promises to be a distinctive evening shared with our fellow community members that none of us are likely to soon forget.”
For Richmond encourages the local community to come out Oct. 20 to learn from Ambassador Young about the vision, values and virtues that sustained the civil rights movement, transformed Atlanta and changed a nation. To RSVP, click here.
