New Year Brings New Beginnings


From The Desk of President Barbara A. Perkins
Happy New Year! We hope you had a restful holiday break enjoying time with your loved ones and finding peace in year-end reflections.
The new year is a season of new beginnings! January is historic and significant for so many reasons. First, we observe Dr. Martin L. King Jr.’s birthday and reflect on his legacy as a global leader who had the moral courage and authority to fight for the civil and human rights of every human being.
This month, we also observe National Slavery and Human Trafficking Month , a time to spread awareness of the global epidemic that continues to destroy lives and exploit victims every day. We encourage you to share our position paper and the resources below with your friends, neighbors and loved ones to save more lives.
Finally, in January we also observe National Mentoring Month . IBWPPI has a special one-time book fundraiser to encourage mentorship among inter-generational women. Learn more details below!
January is the perfect time to continue your journey to giving back and finding your path to greatness.
With gratitude,
Barbara A. Perkins
