UWP WU Cliff Effect Series: “Racial Equity Lunch & Learn” @ Thornton Activity Center
Feb 13 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm

Women United members are focused on helping other women in our local community, especially households led by single mothers, conquer the cliff.

This is the second topic covered during Women United’s five part series on the cliff effect. Each topic covered can stand independently, however attending as many as possible is the best way to understand the challenges, resources and gaps we face. The series will run from January – May 2020.

This session will focus on racial inequities. Racial inequities exist in our community and negatively impact education, financial stability, and health. Inequities will not disappear on their own, but we have the power to disrupt them. Join us for lunch and learn more about the specifics of racial inequities in Spartanburg County and how we’re addressing the issues. Kara Davis (Metropolitan Studies Institute) will share an overview of the Racial Equity Index and Jessica Holcomb (Spartanburg Housing Authority) and Mitch Kennedy (City of Spartanburg) will participate in a panel discussion.
