INTERACTIVE DISCUSSION & NEXT STEPS
Led by Heather Peeler, President & CEO of ACT for Alexandria
As Alexandria’s community foundation, the vision of a vibrant and equitable community is core to our work. It is important for us to hear from the community about what is needed to move forward to make this vision a reality. The Forum will conclude with an opportunity for attendees to discuss ways in which to promote racial equity in their personal lives, in their workplace, and within the larger community. These conversations will help inform ACT’s Racial Equity Capacity Building Initiative and grantmaking.
Jaqueline Tucker, Race & Social Equity Officer, City of Alexandria, will also share the next steps participants can take with the All Alexandria 30-Day Racial Equity Challenge.
The 30-Day Racial Equity Challenge is an educational tool used to advance a deeper understanding of the intersections of race, power, privilege, supremacy, and oppression. The Challenge invites participants to complete 30 short assignments over 30 consecutive days, which include readings, videos, or podcasts. The goal is to increase knowledge and understanding and engage people as we continue our racial equity journey.
