Second Annual Social Equity Summit: Anti-Racism Work Beyond the Statement
May 13, 2021 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm$50
Just Communities is happy to invite you to our Second Annual Social Equity Summit, “Anti-Racism Work Beyond the Statement,” taking place virtually on Thursday, May 13th! Join us to celebrate our 20th Year Anniversary and learn more about becoming an agent of change!
The Second Annual Social Equity Summit will bring together 100+ members of the Central Coast community from all sectors to discuss what individuals, organizations, and our community can do to address racism, beyond a statement. What concrete steps towards a more equitable and just community can follow statements of solidarity, including the many affirmations that emerged in the aftermath of George Floyd’s and Breonna Taylor’s murder? What tools do we have to dismantle systems of oppression? What conversations do we have with our families? What comforts are we risking by being an ally?
For the past 20 years, Just Communities has moved the needle of equity forward through shared understanding and a common language to coordinated action. In 2019/2020 and 2020/2021, through our community partnerships, we worked with over 600 youth, educators, families, and other community allies; ranging from 6th graders to those who have reached retirement. These connections are what drive our mission, creating spaces of opportunity where people are valued, respected, and heard. Our programs, ranging from the Learning Pods, developed to address the gaps in access and opportunity in education during the pandemic, assisting 75 families who are facing economic challenges, to our most recent Anti-Racist Educator Collaborative, a support network of 25 educators trying to promote equity and representation in their schools by sharing activities, resources, and supporting each other, enable us to advance our vision of creating a community where all people are connected, respected, and valued.
