Join JUFJ for a discussion about racial inequity with Jonathan Hutto, community organizer with Empower DC. How is racial inequity experienced in DC? What does it look like? We will explore how seemingly innocuous policies can harm communities of color, and how viewing these policies through a racial equity lens can change things, rather than perpetuating inequity. We'll also learn about the legislation currently in DC Council that is trying to do just that! Join us to talk about what folks who have race privilege can give up to move us all towards a more equitable city.
