Massachusetts ranks amongst the top in education, healthcare, and the economy. Yet, in stark contrast, Latinos and African Americans in Massachusetts face the steepest socio-economic disparity in the country.
Our “fire starters” speakers will address the inter-relationship between race and inequality and the major factors that impact our communities. We hope to inspire a lively discussion about the barriers and opportunities for civic engagement and economic mobility as communities of color, through the lens of the Diaspora and the Afro-Latino experience. Let’s continue using our collective power to make a difference for our communities of color in Massachusetts.
Confirmed speakers include:
