Racial Equity Speakers

Racial equity can only be achieved when identity no longer predicts outcomes.  With so many of our systems lacking justice, as well as common sense, striving for merely racial equality is insufficient. Organizations must consider a myriad of factors (socioeconomics, geography, culture) in order to level the playing field. Those with privilege must understand how to spend it effectively. These thought leaders seek to dismantle systemic racism and promote policies that work for everyone.
