What's Next?

A series of roundtable discussions with community leaders that seeks to answer the question “What’s next for us to eliminate institutional and systemic racism in society in the wake of George Floyd’s death?”

With the killing of George Floyd, the Twin Cities community, Minnesota, nation, and world witnessed protests and heard passionate demands for change with regard to racial justice. Many are wondering “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 will 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 College of Liberal Arts will host a series of focused discussions with community leaders in various domains, including the business and philanthropic community, the criminal justice system, K-12 education, alumni change agents, and the liberal arts during autumn 2020 and spring 2021.
