EMERGE receives national equity grant from the walmart foundation

On April 3, the Walmart Foundation announced the recipients of a national grant program focused on equity and inclusion and honoring the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King. The announcement was delivered in Memphis as part of MLK50 Symposium, a two-day convening of scholars, historians and thought leaders from across the country to present on the state of civil and human rights issues and racial and economic equity 50 years after the death of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Walmart's grant to EMERGE will support our GED and career training programs. 

"EMERGE is one of 12 organizations nationwide that the Walmart Foundation is supporting as part of their $3.9 commitment to honoring the legacy of Dr. King through projects that promote equity and opportunity. “We are honored to be part of this historic coast-to-coast push for equity in Dr. King’s memory” said Mike Wynne, President and CEO of EMERGE. #MK50 #MLK #MLK50NCRM
