Racial Equity Network

Lisa just came to visit our table and shared a bit about her experience at the Racial Equity conference that she recently attended in Lansing. I asked her about the panel that struck her the most. “It was a whole youth panel. A lot of people don’t think youth have voices. They really know a lot more than people give them credit for. I really enjoyed it because it was really informative.”

Another panel that spoke to Lisa was that about Indigenous Rights in the US. She learned that state governments are still displacing Indigenous peoples in truly heinous ways. “I thought they stopped doing that. They are pushing them closer and closer to the river in Indiana, if I remember correctly, basically trying to run them out of the state. I thought this was the United States.”
