Please note: this event has been canceled.

How far have we come as Americans in confronting racism? This is a topic that remains so intimidating and painful that we prefer not to talk about it in public for fear of what we might say or reveal, or how others might see or treat us. In this forum series, we wish to create a safe space where we can speak openly and honestly as people of good intent who seek the best for each other and our nation as we honestly face the racial divisions of our past and present with the hope of reconciliation. This year’s forum series will focus on combating racism in Vermont.

In the summer of 2019 Vermont State Senators, Representatives, and citizens met at Hartford Union High School in Hartford, VT to form the Social Equity Caucus to advocate for the creation and passage of social justice legislation affecting people of color. We will hear and discuss what progress has been made from its founding members: State Representative Kevin Christie, State Representative Brian China, and State Representative Lucy Rogers.
