YWCA Delaware Confronts Institutional Racism
Monday, January 19th
The Episcopal Church of Saints Andrew and Matthew
719 N. Shipley Street,
Wilmington, DE
10:00 a.m. to noon
Continental breakfast served at 9:00 a.m.

YWCA Delaware recognizes MLK, Jr., Day each year by presenting an Action Forum to raise awareness and inspire action to affect social change around issues of racial disparity and race relations. Join us for this year’s Action Forum to address institutional racism based on the fact that race continues to be a significant factor in every dimension of life such as employment, education, economics, housing, health care, crime, political candidates, and public policy. The focus of the forum is to engage the community, willing executives, and public policymakers to become proactive in finding common ground to close the racial divide in Delaware communities.

Panelists:

Michele Greene, Chair of the US Constitution, 4th Amendment Search and Seizure Committee of the Coalition to Dismantle the New Jim Crow
George Higgins, Acting Director of the Delaware Coalition Against Gun Violence
Dr. Yasser Payne, Associate Professor of the Department of Black American Studies at the University of Delaware
Roy Sudler, Jr., Mt. Zion A.M.E. Church’s Chairman of the Social Action Commission

Register (the Action Forum is free, but seating may be limited).
