The Seattle Public Library and Collective Impact Forum invite you to Advancing Racial Equity and Engaging the Community’s Voice: A Conversation with Ferguson Commission Co-Chair Rev. Starsky Wilson.
Join us for a conversation with Reverend Starsky D. Wilson, president & CEO of Deaconess Foundation and co-chair of the Ferguson Commission. Appointed by Missouri’s governor in 2014, the Ferguson Commission made recommendations in 2015 to help the region address issues exposed by Brown’s death – including changes in policing, the courts, child well-being and economic mobility.
Karen Toering of Social Justice Fund Northwest will moderate a discussion and audience Q&A with Rev. Wilson. Discussion topics will include the role of the media in shaping conversations about race, and how to engage diverse community voices when working towards equity and equitable outcomes for all.
