The Pat Tillman Foundation’s mission is to unite and empower a community of diverse veterans and spouses as they continue their education and prepare for humble leadership in civilian, political and professional life. In that spirit, and amid an important, ongoing national conversation on race and equity, we want to elevate the voices of Tillman Scholars who actively engage in these seemingly intractable problems that have affected society for generations.
This week, we kick off a new initiative, Tillman Scholars Voices, beginning with an introduction from Marie Tillman Shenton, our cofounder and board chair, and a video featuring Keidrick Roy, a 2017 Tillman Scholar. Over the next few weeks, we will be sharing the experiences of more Tillman Scholars, giving them the opportunity to discuss how those experiences shape their work, their reactions to the national conversation on racial equity and the ways they lead through action and work toward change.
We invite you to learn more about these scholars and how they actively work toward equity and justice across multiple practice areas, including law, health care, humanities, public policy and more. They show us every day the importance of leading through action in moments of crisis—and beyond.
