Please join us to hear the thoughts of past awardees of the Joseph B. and Toby Gittler Prize and the Richman Distinguished Fellowship in Public Life on the directions of the Black Lives Matter movement at this pivotal moment in our nation’s history. What might we expect in the near future as we transition from a Trump to Biden administration? How might we, as a society, avoid returning to the status quo on questions of racial inequity and social justice? Might the racial and ethnic health disparities made so visible by the pandemic trigger a rethinking of public policy and programs? What can we, as individuals, do to support the goals of the Black Lives Matter movement in order to bring about lasting and meaningful change?
