My Brother’s Keeper: 2019 Race to Equity Summit

The MBK Race to Equity Summit workshops will bring together people from government, community organizations, businesses, local residents and leaders from across the state to breakdown barriers and build opportunity for our youth and young men of color.

The theme for this year’s summit is Facing, Embracing, and Leading with Equity. The 2019 Race to Equity Summit will provide a unique space for community members, leaders, activists, young people, and organizers to learn about and unite in solidarity for collective impact and justice across programs, systems, and policies, through interactive workshops, sessions, and skill-building.

The goals of this conference are to:

  • Boldly face racial inequities by examining how many of our systems have perpetuated institutional, structural and systemic barriers adversely impacting children, youth and young adults of color.
  • Intentionally embrace strategies using a racial equity lens to challenge reforms in our government, education, health, labor, housing, social services and criminal justice systems.
  • Unapologetically lead with race, tackling burning – as well as deep-rooted – issues and bringing forward innovative and inclusive solutions to positively transform the lives of children, youth and young adults of color.

Who should attend?

  • Any individual who desires to learn more about what is happening and what it will take to create a more equitable Palm Beach County.
  • Any action-oriented person working to face, embrace and lead in the movement for racial equity on behalf of historically underserved communities.
  • Any organization with an expressed commitment to improving opportunity for all.
  • Any youth or young adult who wants to be engaged in the process, sharing their own story, redefining how the systems and policies that affect their lives can be transformed.
  • All who are willing to challenge systems of oppression in the movement for social and economic justice.

Proceeds will support United Way of Palm Beach County’s Mentor Center to help increase the number of mentor/mentee matches and support Future Leaders United for Change in Palm Beach County.

Registration will begin on November 1, 2018.
