The Path to Racial Equity, a series of six virtual programs beginning on Thursday, January 14th at 5:30pm, will draw on experts who will examine the issues surrounding racial inequity in Austin and offer simple, practical steps each of us can take to be part of the solution.

PATH TO EQUITY: THE AFTERSHOW
After each virtual discussion, The Central Texas Collective for Racial Equity will host “Path to Equity: The Aftershow” every Tuesday on Facebook Live. Central Texas regional thought-leaders will share their personal reactions, insights and perspectives to each episode in the Path to Equity series in a small roundtable conversation followed by a live Q&A.
