The Path to Racial Equity: Education and Understanding
Thursday, January 14, 2021 (5:30 PM - 7:00 PM) (CST)
Despite America’s most sacred ideal of egalitarianism, racial inequality has been a fact of American life throughout our history. Despite historic civil rights advancements, systemic inequity continues to be ingrained in our society—including in our own communities—holding us back from our promise.
How can we all make a difference? The Path to Racial Equity, a series of six virtual programs, will draw on experts who will examine the issues surrounding racial inequity in Austin and offer simple, practical steps each of us can take to be part of the solution.
Thursday, January 14: EDUCATION AND UNDERSTANDING
How can we educate ourselves to better understand and be conscious of the everyday marginalization and inequity experienced by people of color?
Guest: Glenn E. Singleton, Founder and President of Courageous Conversation
Moderator: Mark K. Updegrove, President & CEO, LBJ Foundation
