Justice or Just Us: Ensuring Opportunity for All
Charlotte has a number of giants living in our midst. Dr. Stephanie Cooper-Lewter, Executive Director Leading on Opportunity, is one of them ... a World-Class Educator, Activist and Speaker.
Dr. Cooper-Lewter brings nearly 25 years of experience in the nonprofit and philanthropic sectors, devoted to the cause of equal opportunity for all. She moved to Charlotte in 2018 to serve as Executive Director of Leading on Opportunity, charged with working alongside our community to address the finding that Charlotte ranked last among the 50 largest U.S. cities in upward mobility, and Mecklenburg County ranked 99th out of 100.
Her personal story informs her passion as a social worker to ensure every child in Charlotte-Mecklenburg has an equal chance to achieve social and economic success.
SouthEnd ARTS is honored Dr. Cooper-Lewter will share her story at “ARTS interACTION” at the Trolley. When you hear her story your heart will open wide. It’s this kind of storytelling that makes us realize we are more alike than we realize. This will be another unforgettable SouthEnd ARTS Opening Night.
