Joshua Hughes

Joshua Hughes is a 2018 ANYTOWN® graduate. When asked if he would like to write a letter to donors, here is what he had to say:

“Dear Donors,

Because of your generosity I had the privilege to participate in ANYTOWN®, a program that is life changing and helped me overcome my own traumatic experiences with racism, discrimination, stereotypes and prejudice as an African American male student and lacrosse player. I was able to bond and listen to other youth’s painful experiences, learn leadership skills and strategies to advocate and create inclusive communities. I found my voice again and I will use my voice to advocate for fair and equal education, diversity, equality and inclusion in lacrosse. Thank you for investing in youth and social change.”
