Empowerment Day 2016 — You’re Invited!

Isn’t it time we talked?

Starting with Empowerment Day 2016 and continuing through Empowerment Day 2017, your Columbus Urban League will host three critical constructive conversations about race.

We will invite thoughtful introspection and call the question: What changes are needed to offer real opportunities for all? 

Start by joining us on 10/24/2016 for Empowerment Day 2016. Tickets are now available. Uncover the truth behind the numbers. What role does racism play in who goes to jail, who lives on the street and who is stuck in poverty?

Our moderator, radio and television analyst Jeff Johnson, will challenge our thinking and our panel of experts: author and activist Michelle Alexander (criminal justice); Community Shelter Board President Michelle Heritage (homelessness); and Ohio Department of Job and Family Services Director Cynthia Dungey (economic opportunity).

Together, we can foster a stronger community, one that lives out the principles of justice and equity and realizes a significant benefit from everyone’s talents.
