A WORD FROM OUR FOUNDER

When I was sixteen, I was the President of the United Nations Club and wrote an essay called The Social Ripple Effect. In the essay, I spoke about community leadership starting within one's self, their community, and then spreading across the world.

That essay ended up winning the Michigan Teen United Nations Grant, a $100 prize and a huge plaque with my name on it. After the insidious murder of George Floyd, I was desperate to make a change, but felt helpless as just a normal Black women with no extensive monetary value--then I remembered the essay.

The Social Ripple Effect is belief in global change through small local actions. At SRE, we believe you do not have to be a celebrity or billionaire to make the world a better place. Our five five five ripple practice is this: Education yourself of five topics, educate five family members or friends, donate to five causes, sign five petitions, and recruit five people to do the same. That's how you start the ripple.

Change is never easy nor is it swift. It's a gradually rise like the mythical phoenix from the ashes. I hope you join us on our mission of change and inspire others to do the same.

Three Steps to Start A Ripple

You don't make progress by standing on the sidelines, whimpering and complaining. You make progress by implementing ideas.

Shirley Chisholm

ACADEMICS

At SRE we believe education is the first step in making change. Our guest speakers donate their time to provide factual information to our attendees about the causes we support.

ACTION

After you've educated yourself, you must take action. Every SRE event is equipped with voter registration tables and information. Voting is the quickest form of action you can take in the United States to make a real change.

ACCESS

The last step to a successful ripple is access. Being a true ally is about opening doors and breaking the chains of systemic racism. Take a look around your workplace or school--is it a representation of change? If not, start the ripple.
