Comcast NBCUniversal is not only committed to advance social justice and equality, but is providing a $100 million, multi-year plan to support social impact programs. As part of its partnership with the Utah Division of Multicultural Affairs, Comcast NBCUniversal is hosting a virtual Social Justice Speakers’ Series where you can participate and learn how to be an active ally, anti-racist and become involved in your communities’ programs.
Through this event, you will come away with tactics and strategies to actively participate in allyship and antiracism.
5:30 pm MST – Learn from best-selling author and keynote speaker, Austin Channing Brown, as she talks about how you can actively be an ally and anti-racist.
Our commitment to racial justice and anti-racism requires we dig into the muddiness of humanity, reckoning with the worst of our humanity as we call out its best. This work is not for the faint of heart. It requires hope. Not a hope founded on good feelings or good intentions, but hope that demands. For our hope is risky, relentless, rooted in our certainty that love will win. “ – Austin Channing Brown, NYTs Best Selling Author
6:15 pm MST – Join community members where you can participate in a panel discussion directly after to talk about initiatives in Utah to advance social justice and equality.
