SPUR Presents: History, Humanity and Community Planning

Partner Events

This year, in addition to facing an ongoing global health crisis, two minority communities around the country are also confronting the pandemic of racism. Chinese Americans have experienced a rising tide of hate resulting from the perception that their ethnic identity correlates to the origins of COVID-19. And the senseless killing of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor and others has brought new light to the endemic prejudice and inequity faced by Black Americans and ignited a global movement for justice and equality. Join us for an exploration of historical experiences and shared struggles for civil rights, followed by a discussion of the public policies and initiatives being undertaken that strive to create greater social and economic equity in our society.
