YPS Presents: A Town Hall on Race | 1:30PM - 3:00PM
As a delayed racial reckoning sweeps the nation, systemic racism and racial inequities are thrust into the forefront of public discourse with stat sanctioned violence and a global pandemic that has disproportionately impacted Black, Indigenous People of Color as a backdrop. There is a bright light, young people are taking the lead and doing the work. This candid conversation will explore the role that race and gender identity play in health, education, the workplace, and civic life. We'll discuss the current state of affairs and how we can all contribute to the drafting of a new social contract that is equitable for all.
