Wednesday evening Politic365 hosted its first annual Game Changers Forum & Reception. The policy forum featured guest speakers from various industries and the topic of discussion was jobs and the economy. The forum was followed by the reception at which Politic365 honored 365 bi-partisan, multi-cultural emerging and established leaders from across the country.
Politic365’s editorial board also chose to posthumously bestow the Game Changers honor on Trayvon Martin. His mother, Sybrina Fulton, and father, Tracy Martin were present to accept the award.
Rev. Al Sharpton, of the National Action Network and host of Politics Nation, and Roslyn M. Brock, Chair of the NAACP Board of Directors, delivered remarks with regards to the Trayvon Martin case.
Also in attendance were several members of the Congressional Black Caucus, the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute, power players from various industries and Politic365’s contributors.
Politic365 will publicly announce all 365 Game Changers next week. The announcement will be followed by daily profiles throughout the year that will highlight each recipient.
