Hidden in Plain Sight – The Truth About Systemic Racism

January 16 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

 

Aldrich Public Library

| Free

The Vermont Attorney General And Human Rights Commission Task Force on Act 54 Racial Disparities in State Systems Report in 2017 indicated that “In addition, and likely related to the income disparities, racial disparities have been documented in each of the areas identified in Act 54 (education, labor and employment, housing, healthcare and economic development).”   Until we can gain a common understanding of how and why this is happening, there is limited potential for true transformation.  Through personal stories and aided with the research of national experts on the matter, Racial Justice Alliance Coordinator, Mark Hughes unpacks systemic racism from several perspectives and discusses solutions.

“Hidden in Plain Sight” will be presented on a community tour across the state.  Go here to find a date in your area:   https://bit.ly/2QoOxeH.
