On April 12, we hope you’ll join us as we start the groundwater conversation here in Macon. Facilitated by national trainers from the Racial Equity Institute, this Groundwater Presentation is a half-day workshop that uses stories and research data to illustrate how racism is fundamentally structural in nature. By examining characteristics of present-day racial inequity, the presentation introduces participants to analysis and understanding that helps organizations and communities collectively identify and address the root causes of racism.

This free community event is made possible by Knight Foundation.

Space is limited.

Continental breakfast will be provided. Attendees are also invited to stay for lunch after the Groundwater Presentation and participate in a facilitated discussion.
