Community Forum to Address the Impact of Discriminatory Laws and Policies
Registration is now open for the “Racial Inequities in Law” virtual event, which will take place on May 24 at 6 p.m. The discussion will highlight the lived experiences of two law professionals who will focus on the challenges of navigating inequitable laws as attorneys and People of Color. This event is part of the Foundation’s commitment to racial equity and challenging structural racism embedded in our culture, laws and policies, educational institutions, and economy.
“Education and open dialogue are critical to advancing a more equitable and inclusive community, which is core to the mission of the Hampton Roads Community Foundation,” said Vivian Oden, vice president for equity and inclusion. “We look forward to continuing these conversations through the lens of our distinguished panelists, and we anticipate an engaging discussion that will result in actionable takeaways for attendees.”
Moderated by Jonathan C. Zur, president and CEO of the Virginia Center for Inclusive Communities, the expert panel will feature Khiara M. Bridges, J.D./Ph.D., professor of law at UC Berkeley School of Law and Wendell Taylor, managing partner at Hunton Andrews Kurth (DC office). The panelists will also share meaningful ways to advocate for systemic change with the goal of creating a more equitable and thriving community with opportunity for all.
“Racial Inequities in Law” is presented in partnership with Hunton Andrews Kurth and Kaufman & Canoles.
There is no cost to attend, but registration is required at HamptonRoadsEquity.eventbrite.com.
