With more than 850 folks tuning in to hear from Austin Channing Brown – the first Social Justice Series was an overwhelming success. Attendees when went away with actionable guidelines to continue their work in allyship and antiracism. We hope this series strengthens equality and inclusivity in workplaces and communities across the state of Utah.
Comcast NBCUniversal is continuing our commitment to advance social justice and equality with a $100 million, multi-year plan to support social impact programs. As part of our partnership with the Utah Division of Multicultural Affairs, we will host part-two of our virtual Social Justice Series – Young Activism: How to Be One and How to Support One, featuring Brea Baker on Tuesday, October 27 at 5:30 PM MST.
Brea is an activist/organizer with a degree in Political Science from Yale University. Brea contributed to dozens of electoral and advocacy campaigns including the 2017 Women’s March (where they served as the youngest national organizer), the campaign to #FreeMeekMill, the 2018 student walkouts against gun violence, Jumaane Williams’ successful bid for NYC Public Advocate, and more.
