Race and Equity in Volunteering: From Lived Experience to Leadership

Join Points of Light and Morehouse College on April 21 at 1 p.m. for our next Listen. Learn. Act. to End Racism conversation

Like Comment

Volunteers support and represent work in every aspect of our social fabric, providing essential support, enriching our communities and cultural life, and taking action where change is needed. However, volunteerism can also reinforce patterns of power and privilege that uphold systemic racism. In this conversation, our audience will learn how to recognize volunteer activities and patterns that perpetuate inequities, how to thoughtfully engage community, and ultimately, how volunteer engagement, when designed well, can be a part of the solution for healing the wounds of racial inequity and social injustice.
