Join us for a session on community engagement and advocacy as Maryland House of Delegates Majority Leader Eric Luedtke discusses how we can champion causes and through advocacy create policy and institutional changes to reach desired outcomes. In this session, the conversation will focus on House Bill 156 and its importance in shaping the voting process for those attending institutions of higher education. This is an opportunity to learn more about legislative reform, student civic engagement through voting and policy changes that can empower students to vote
About the Black Friday Webinar Series
Black Friday is a webinar series discussing the discounts Black people have been forced to take due to flawed public policy. The series will explore the disparate treatment and impact of public policy in the United States – both historically and to date – on racial outcomes in areas such as housing, education, healthcare, gender identity, criminal justice and wealth. Centuries of federal, state and local policies have cemented systemic racism into our institutions, our culture, and individual's explicit and implicit bias. Through a series of lectures, articles, videos and other educational material, we will demonstrate how the intersection of policy and practice can be used to address chronic issues that exist in Black communities as a result of flawed (or simply absent) policies and practices. As a policy school, we hope that these webinars will educate and inspire conversations in an effort to promote accountability and seek remedy for deficiencies in policies that have disproportionately affected Black people in this country. This series is co-hosted by Executive Development and the DIB Task Force.
