UUCWC’s Racial Justice Ministry Speaker Series
America Will Be: Fulfilling Our Nation’s Promise Through Targeted & Equitable Policy
Come hear New Jersey Policy Perspective’s President Brandon McKoy explain the impact of centuries of racism on federal, state and local policy. This legacy racism has created implicit and explicit bias in our government policy and programs that keep many people vulnerable and disengaged. We have the opportunity to change the paradigm through government policy and budgeting that support equity and inclusion for all. This program is sponsored by the Racial Justice Ministry of UUCWC and is open to the public.
