Unpacking Racial Inequity: Understanding How Systemic Racism Impacts Our Community

Racism is a fierce, ever-present, challenging force, one which has structured the thinking, behavior, and actions of individuals and institutions since the beginning of U.S. history. To understand racism and effectively begin dismantling it requires an equally fierce, consistent, and committed effort.

We’ll begin with a 2 1/2 hour “Groundwater” presentation on racial equity by the Racial Equity Institute (REI). REI uses historical data and stories to present a perspective that racism is fundamentally found in the structure of the nation. By examining modern-day characteristics of racial inequity, participants are introduced to an analysis that most find immediately helpful and relevant. Immiediately following REI’s presentation, Dr. Pam Brown (A.A. Co. Partnership CYF) will walk us through local data to help us understand the many ways this inequity shows up in our community and our systems here in Annapolis and Anne Arundel County.

This event is hosted by the Anne Arundel County Partnership for Children, Youth and Families and Anne Arundel Women Giving Together with generous support from our partners:
