2023 Equity, Racial Justice, and Culture Lunch & Learn Series


We’re excited to share our Equity, Racial Justice, and Culture Lunch & Learn series for 2023! I hope you will join me, along with some amazing speakers from across the state and the country to be in space and learn together during these “Action” shops, held each third Thursday of the month, skipping August and December from 11am-12:30pm and will make space for conversations, questions, activities, and self-reflection. Each session will offer tips and tools to shift organizational policies and procedures, aim to support people and organizations at all levels of their equity journey, and help align our collective toward understanding and operationalizing racial equity to benefit the people within our larger housing justice movement – from work culture to state policy.
