In 2020 —
…Our health and economy have been threatened by an indiscriminate virus
…Our hearts and communities have been broken by brutal acts against people of color
…The world looked on while we were vividly reminded of our unfinished work to reverse racial and ethnic inequities

An online panel hosted by the League of Women Voters of Santa Barbara will explore:
● White privilege and local racial/ethnic inequities
● Systemic racism in our K-12 schools and public safety departments
● Our community’s ‘To-Do’ list to reverse systemic racism as defined by the voices of our local black, brown, and indigenous                  communities
● Actions to address systemic racism within the Santa Barbara County, city, and local school districts
● How individuals can strive to be “anti-racists,” join efforts to reverse systemic racism, and foster diversity

Speakers and Moderators include:
Hilda Maldonado, new Superintendent of Santa Barbara Unified School District, formerly Associate Superintendent of                      Leadership and Partnerships, LA Schools
Namino Glantz, PhD, Associate Director, Mil Familias Programs, Sansum Diabetes Research Institute
Geoff Newlan, attorney, racial justice advocate
Linda Honikman, Housing and Social Policy Committees, League of Women Voters of Santa Barbara (and self-described                    white privileged lady from a boring, segregated hometown)
Mary Jacob, recently retired as Assistant Vice Chancellor for Enrollment Services, UCSB
Revae Moran, Director, Voter Service, League of Women Voters of Santa Barbara
