Do you know what the ‘Lost Cause’ is?
Are you aware that after the emancipation proclamation the formerly enslaved were given NOTHING from the Country that they built?
Did you know that 40,000 formerly enslaved were given 40 acres and a mule only to have their land confiscated by the federal government by President Andrew Johnson.
Oh so much policy and terror that we are still all subjected to today in many many ways. Join us tomorrow at the Greenburgh Library as we unpack our shared legacies. Liberation practice Mental health professionals will be present and we will do wellness exercises prior to dismissal
The Good Policy Institute is a policy institute that focuses on the research, study, and assessment of policy through an equity lens. Race is the single most determinant of adverse outcomes in policy. In order to address the disparate effects across race and other intersections of identity, we need The Good Policy Institute, the only organization of its kind in Westchester County, to present The Honest Series. The Honest Series talks are designed to create collaborative thoughts on race equity conversations that parlay into policy initiatives. These policy initiatives are aimed at the mitigation of historic, systemic, and oftentimes lethal racism in Westchester. Following two successful and well-attended talks on racism in Greenburgh and race, gender, and privilege in Greenburgh we welcome you to join us again.
