Notations On Our World (W-End Edition): Points of Light

Points of Light values inclusivity, diversity, and equality. We stand with people who are taking action for a more just and equitable world. We believe every action matters, that civic engagement takes many forms and is critical to advancing causes that improve society for everyone.
Our President & CEO, Natalye Paquin, shares her reflections on the recent events taking place in America in the past 10 days.
Dr. Kwane Stewart witnessed many people relinquishing their pets during the 2007 Great Recession. This inspired him to reach out to the underserved in his community, offering pro bono services to pets of individuals experiencing homelessness.
