“Working alongside Lou, Joshua, Felicia, Jasmine and Nicole has been a blessing. It’s very rare that an organization can bring together a group of people that are not only invested in the work but are also invested in one another. Going further together in our city is a testament to each members’ willingness to embrace challenges, make sacrifices and just be there for one another (while having a good time doing it). We’ve transcended being coworkers; we’re family.” – Demetra Brown
Generation Dallas History
