NYC Commission on Human Rights holds a Roundtable Conversation: Veterans’ Experiences with Anti-Black Racism and Discrimination on August 15, 5:30-7:30pm. This conversation is specifically for folks that are veterans and identify as black, African American, African Immigrant, Afro-Caribbean, Afro-Latinx or anyone having African ancestry.
The goals of this project include:
- Surfacing information about forms of discrimination and racism experienced by black New Yorkers that may be normalized and/or go underreported;
- Inform Commission of law enforcement, policy and community and media outreach efforts;
- Generate data that may be useful to government, non-profit and philanthropic actors that support the city’s Black communities;
- Build and strengthen relationships between the Commission and community and faith organizations serving Black New Yorkers.
Please call to RSVP. Refreshments and metro cards will be provided.
