African American Leadership Forum

2017 AALF Forum

"Jeff, you put together an impressive program and you brought together an amazing group of community leaders and intellects. Thank you for what you've done, are doing, and for including me.  I so appreciate your work.”

Dr. Eric Jolly CEO of Minnesota Philanthropy Partners

"I attended the Forum on Saturday and was very moved by many of the things I heard. Much of the content of the movie was parallel to the learning I have been engaged in regarding racial justice. The sharing circle was very powerful. A lot of it hurt, and made me feel a real sense of ownership and responsibility for healing and restorative justice. I feel that I will likely never live up to my full responsibility in this area but I will not stop learning, listening and trying to heal our world.”
