Join Bridge for a discussion on racial justice in Michigan

July 28: Missed Bridge’s discussion on racial justice in Michigan? Watch the video

Here at Bridge, we consistently seek opportunities to talk with our readers about the most important issues impacting our lives in Michigan. Because we can’t do so in person now, we’re pleased to debut our monthly reader discussions online on July 28.

We asked for reader feedback on our first topic, and you chose racial justice and inequality in Michigan. We’ll discuss this critical topic in an hour-long, solutions-oriented discussion moderated by Capitol reporter Riley Beggin. Our special guest panelists include Branden Snyder, executive director of Detroit Action, a community organization working for housing and economic justice in Detroit, and Kafi Kumasi, associate professor of library and information science at Wayne State University, where she researches issues of equity and diversity.  

Participants can submit questions for the panelists via the Zoom chat function.

I am just wondering if readers who don't participate will be able to watch later on someplace other than facebook. It will be an interesting discussion.

Thank you.
