Racial Equity Solutions Tour Kickoff Event
I am proud to be hosting the kickoff event for the PA Senate Democrats Racial Equity Solutions Tour on July 21, 2020 from 11:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. This event will discuss the broad themes the PA Senate Democratic Caucus wishes to address as we work for racial equity in Pennsylvania. Topics will include police and criminal justice reform, racial justice, economic freedom, and building a broad coalition of advocates to achieve those goals.
Speakers at the event will be:
- Sen. Anthony H. Williams, introductions;
- Van Jones, on organizing for justice;
- Solomon Jones, Hassan Bennet, and Marlon Byrd on policing, corrections and criminal justice reform;
- Kenny Duncan on Economic Freedom;
- And Jessica Jackson & Jenna Moll on organizing a broad coalition.
The ongoing protests in our country sparked by the police killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis have led to outcries for change across this country. This tour is a chance about how to turn these words into action.
The kickoff will be held via Zoom and livestreamed on my website and Facebook pages for the health and safety of all those involved as we continue to also fight the COVID-19 pandemic.
