Civic Leadership and Organizing for Equitable Change

Our society, democracy and communities will never achieve their full potential on equal rights, justice, and opportunities for all unless we intentionally and honestly speak about and address institutional and structural racism and the many barriers and disparities they have created for Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) and their communities. Civic leadership can be effective in addressing these challenges, but it has to have a strong foundation of effective and inclusive community organizing that challenges racist structures, policies, and practices. This panel will focus on barriers and disparities evident in criminal justice, housing and education, and health care that are being addressed through racial (and intersectional) equity-driven community organizing. Participants will also engage with the panelists individually in small groups to deepen the conversation.
