Dwayne Clark to Speak at March for Civility

By | March for Civility Updates & News | No Comments

Civility isn’t just confined to political or race issues, often in our society seniors are overlooked or marginalized. Dwayne Clark realized this injustice while caring for his mother who was suffering from Alzheimer’s. Dwayne has spent the last 20 years founding and running Aegis Living, a leader in the world of assisted living.

We are excited to have Dwayne on stage Saturday to shed light on those less fortunate communities that don’t often dominate the headlines.
