With the murder of George Floyd on May 25, 2020, the Twin Cities community, Minnesota, nation, and world witnessed protests and heard passionate demands for change with regard to racial justice. It led many to wonder “what’s next?” Is lasting, responsive change possible? Was this time different? Will we truly progress toward making our communities racially just and equitable?
The “What’s Next?” Roundtables address the critical and complex question: What’s next for us to eliminate institutional and systemic racism in society in the wake of George Floyd’s death? The series, hosted by the College of Liberal Arts, brings together community leaders in various domains, including the business and philanthropic community, the criminal justice system, K-12 education, alumni change agents, and more.
