A recent spate of articles report that no matter their background, Black folks are faced with seemingly insurmountable odds in pursuit of equitable opportunities leading to economic freedom. Powerful partnerships are needed to close an array of opportunity gaps that created these unjust outcomes.
You are invited to celebrate the beginning of the American Education Research Association (AERA) conference with the San Francisco Human Rights Commission at LinkedIn’s New York City office in the Empire State Building. Join us for an engaging conversation on Black social outcomes and policieswith a leading economist, Darrick Hamilton, Professor of Economics and Urban Policy at The New School and Associate Director of Duke University’s Center on Social Equity. The discussion will be followed by a panel of leaders in education, government, counseling, and the law sharing best practices for building equitable and lasting partnerships designed to address these pressing issues and yield mutual benefits. The event will conclude with an opportunity to get to know the speakers and guests over free drinks and hors d’oeuvres. Please feel free to share!
