Event Details

EVENT IS FULL!!

The murder of George Floyd initiated an unprecedented number of multiracial, multi-ethnic protests in the United States and across the globe. Black Lives Matters has become the clarion call for institutional change. We have seen an outpouring of companies, nonprofits and businesses release declarative statements about their commitment to fighting against racism and oppression.  But what’s next? How do whites engage with this new movement and be an active part of the solution to dismantling racism and not a part of the problem? What do we mean by the word ally? Who is an ally to whom?

Join us for a special event with space created for white leaders to explore these questions and more through a conversation led by the Racial Equity Institute and Together SC.  We will break into small groups to allow for deeper, more intimate dialogue among participants.
