What stands between a disrespected African American and the source of disrespect is almost four hundred years of history, four centuries of being the target of humiliation and abuse. A history of racial conflict, inequality and contempt culminates in a moment that few people not of the culture could comprehend, let alone predict.―Joy DeGruy, Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome
Thank you to our political representatives, community leaders, and greater Pittsburgh community for attending the second annual Racial Justice Town Hall at Union Project. Over 200 people attended this year! We look forward to seeing you in 2019!
The Racial Justice Town Hall is an intimate forum providing space for dialogue with elected officials about how their offices are addressing racism in our city and county. It is also an opportunity for those unable to attend the 20th Annual Summit to participate and, for those who can, to continue the dialogue on Saturday, January 20, 2018, at the 20th Annual Summit.
