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

Keynote Speaker: 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. | Powerpoint
