Event description
Monthly conversations featuring local leaders of color, as we move toward a vision of radical transformation.

About this event

From the first wave of COVID-19 to the rekindling of the Black Lives Matter movement, our communities have been in constant flux. Yet often, the scramble to react to change excludes input from communities of color. Centering Justice is here to fix that.

In this space, we honor and uplift the voices of leaders of color as central pillars in change making. With a focus on Black communities, you'll hear from folks who are close to the issues and doing things differently. Their lived and career experiences will give more context to the narrative unfolding around us.

Each month, we think about a theme that we hope will resonate with what's on your heart and mind. Our upcoming session on May 5th, Unbuilding Racism, will feature curators, artists and designers Ozi Uduma, Linette Lao and Deanna Van Buren. This session will include amazing visual presentations of our speakers' work, rooted in their personal experiences, as part of a deep exchange about space, place, and belonging. The session will conclude with an interactive activity, so be sure to bring along some paper, colorful pens/pencils, and any other tools and materials to support your creativity. Sessions will take place once a month on the following dates:

  • Wednesday, May 5th, 12-1:30pm
  • Wednesday, June 9th, 12-1:30pm
  • Wednesday, July 14th, 12-1:30pm
  • This series is sponsored by our friends at the United Way of Washtenaw County.
