As our nation grows increasingly diverse, it is also growing increasingly polarized and inequitable. Mark Joseph believes there is a solution, and it lies in the work of intentionally fostering inclusion and equity.
Dr. Joseph is the Leona Bevis and Marguerite Haynam Professor of Community Development at the Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel School of Applied Social Sciences at Case Western Reserve University and the founding director of the National Initiative on Mixed-Income Communities. He and his colleagues lead work in Cleveland and around the country in inclusive community building, which is, he says, increasingly centered on antiracism. If this work is sometimes hard to talk about, it's even harder to do.
As the City Club returns to live, in-person forums, join us on Public Square for a conversation about how we can each help our organizations and communities--and our beloved Cleveland--do the everyday work of antiracist community building.
Rain doesn't stop the show! Our rain location is Old Stone Church, located at right on Public Square at 91 Public Square, Cleveland, Ohio, 44113.
