Black Perspectives in Public Policy
February 9 @ 11:30 am - 12:50 pm
Join P3E’s community engagement manager DeAndré J. Calvert for a discussion on policy perspectives on contemporary and historical issues related to black Americans with Patrick Wimberley, mayor of Inkster, MI; Alma Wheeler Smith, former Washtenaw County commissioner; and Theodore Jones, Detroit Public Schools Community District project manager. Our panelists will provide insight into whether current legislation meets the needs of America’s black population and will examine present-day and systemically inequitable policies in education, access to resources, and civil rights. By sharing the experiences and knowledge gained throughout their journeys, our panelists aim to inspire hope and action for the future of public policy for black Americans.
Light refreshments will be provided.
