Public Policy Forum

Race, Poverty and Policy: Creating an Equitable Michigan

Monday, October 10, 2016
1 – 4:30 p.m.
Radisson Hotel Lansing


Keynoter Photo-Rinku Sen WEBPlease join us for our annual public policy forum, which will include a keynote followed by breakout sessions.

Economic disparity and poverty continue to divide our state and perpetuate racial inequity. The Flint water crisis and many of the issues surrounding the Detroit Public Schools system call for an honest statewide discussion around race equity issues if we are to see systemic change.

We are excited to share that our keynote speaker will be Rinku Sen, president and executive director of Race Forward: The Center for Racial Justice Innovation. Race Forward brings systemic analysis and an innovative approach to complex race issues to help people take effective action toward racial equity through research, media and practice.

Be sure to mark your calendar for this important event! There is no charge and registration information will be coming soon.
