Who Are The People In OUR Neighborhood?

Remember, the show, Mr. Rogers Neighborhood, he told kids when they saw something scary to “look for the helpers.” We have scary things going on in our backyard - but we also have those helpers Mr. Rogers told us to look for. 

Most recently, when he saw the need to be that helper, he and his family “walked the talk” by establishing the Together Strong Community Fund. It’s a vehicle to use "education, conversation, and interaction to combat the root causes of bias." 

As one of the fastest growing cities in Florida, Jacksonville has been in the spotlight for many reasons- but is that good news? Are people seeing Jax as a place where when there is darkness, people shine their light, OR where there is light, people come to overshadow it with darkness? And that is what we are going to tackle today...

My guest is Brightway Insurance co-founder, renowned philanthropist, OneJax Humanitarian Award winner and Community Optimist David Miller.

Schmooze with Suze

Suzie Becker

Hi, I’m Suze. Here with your weekly dose of culture, values and identity- and where we tackle those topics others may consider off-limits. A little about me, I’m a busy Gen X mom who, quite frankly, wanted to grow up like the Brady Bunch… but ended up being raised in the shadow of Schindler’s List. So this means I’ve spent a lifetime navigating these mixed messages we get hit with daily. You know those conversations- where we wonder if it’s safe to speak our minds? Can we share our experiences? Voice our fears and concerns, or should we just keep our mouths shut? Well, too bad. I need to know! But I’m no expert. So, I’m going to schmooze the experts and get their thoughts. Why? So, when we engage with our kids, colleagues, or the countless committees we interact with, we can do it with competence, kindness, confidence, and maybe a bit of humor. If this sounds like your cup of coffee- welcome to Schmooze with Suze.
