How did we get here? Richmond community experts and attendees will explore how structural racism has influenced the K-12 education system.

Providing equitable and fair access to education is a way to close achievement gaps between students. However, due to the historic policies rooted in systemic racism, Black and African American families are faced with disparities in education for their children. In this discussion, we will explore how structural racism has influenced the K-12 education system.

Continue the conversations. Panelists will recommend resources to help educate you further and have deeper conversations with your family and friends.
