Please share this information with the youth in your lives. This is a great opportunity for them to explore their higher education options – including historically black colleges and universities – and find out what it takes to be admitted, win scholarships, obtain financial aid and more.

HB 8 signingThis year, we made it easier and safer for expectant mothers to stay in the workforce and provide for their growing families before and after they give birth. Signed into law last week, House Bill 8 prohibits employers from discriminating against their pregnant employees and requires them to grant reasonable accommodations to work schedules and duties to keep women and their babies healthy.
