Local leader Wendell Coates was featured this week on The Sisaundra Show.
Coates took the lavender couch to talk about philanthropy through his nonprofit Global Not Local.
Coates came up with the idea for Global Not Local in 2019. When the pandemic hit in 2020, he had the opportunity to sit back, create and expand upon it.
What started off as a clothing brand has since then grown into a pinnacle of hope in the community.
The organization’s mission is to inspire the youth globally to dream big without limitations and to look beyond their environment by motivating them to continuously reflect on elevation.
The show is run by Sisaundra Lewis, a singer, producer, artistic director, casting director, writer and AFRO T.V. host.
