The Path to Racial Equity
Thu January 21 @ 5:30 pm | 7:30 pm
An event every week that begins at 5:30 pm on Thursday, repeating until February 18, 2021
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.
The Path to Racial Equity, a series of six virtual programs beginning on Thursday, January 14th at 5:30pm, 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.
PATH TO EQUITY: THE AFTERSHOW
After each virtual discussion, The Central Texas Collective for Racial Equity will host “Path to Equity: The Aftershow” every Tuesday on Facebook Live. Central Texas regional thought-leaders will share their personal reactions, insights and perspectives to each episode in the Path to Equity series in a small roundtable conversation followed by a live Q&A.
