BroadBased Director of Communications Karen Okie became a member of the OneJax Board of Directors in October. She joins a 30-member board composed of people from various backgrounds and professional disciplines.
OneJax is an interfaith organization that promotes respect and understanding among people of different religions, races, cultures and beliefs. Members of the board, staff and volunteers conduct education, community-building and advocacy initiatives for adults and youth to overcome bias, bigotry and racism in the Jacksonville community.
On Nov. 18, OneJax held its annual Interfaith Thanksgiving Gratitude Service, attended by approximately 200 people of different beliefs, some wearing ceremonial dress. Each year, the event is held at different places of worship in Jacksonville. This year the service took place at Hendricks Avenue Baptist Church in San Marco.
