“Not everything that is faced can be changed; but nothing can be changed until it is faced.” James Baldwin
On February 25, 2021, SuffrageForward will present a live, 75-minute ZOOM program, moderated by Shirley Crabbe and Sean Jones, with the aim of fostering an enlightening, inspiring community conversation about racial justice and the challenges and opportunities at this historic moment in our nation. A diverse group of people who have devoted their lives to equity and justice will kick off the conversation including Milly Hawk Daniel, Phyllis B. Frank, and Jamila Michener. They will be joined by speakers, including Dr. Frances Pratt, Nicole Hines, Adal Regis, Gulienne Rollins-Rishon and others who will share personal stories of perseverance, challenge, growth, and compassion. A Q&A will follow.
“In our quest for equality for all, the first step toward change is to listen to each other and to hear what our neighbors have to say,” said Paulette Ross, SuffrageForward Chair. “Through this empathic activity we hope to heighten awareness of social injustice and to inspire action for change.”
