At the Partnership, we believe in continuous learning. It’s a principle that runs through our work and encourages us to continue to ask questions and seek answers so that we can build a better government and a stronger democracy.

Fulfilling this mission means embracing diverse voices and perspectives within and outside of the Partnership. In that spirit, we asked our staff what they were reading, watching and more to honor Black History Month. Here’s what they shared:
