Equality is Not Enough — Building Equitable Communities

October 23 - 7:00 pm

2019 SPEAKER SERIES-- We live in a world that is fundamentally inequitable. The question is, with so much work to be done to address rampant inequities, where do we begin? We can start by including more voices in the conversations. We can unpack and disrupt traditional ways of thinking. We can challenge institutions and devise new ways of viewing our world. And we can cultivate opportunities that enable all of us to thrive.

KUER, RadioWest, and United Way of Salt Lake present this year’s three-part Speaker Series which includes scholar Geoffrey Canada (August 28th), cultural critic Wesley Morris (September 18th), and activist Brittany Packnett (October 23rd). Join us for these candid and focused discussions, as each speaker shares their ideas for working together to challenge systems of exclusion, marginalization, and oppression.
