STL Racial Equity Summit 2021


The 2021 Racial Equity Summit is designed to build on the success of the inaugural summit in 2019 when over 500 advocates for equity gathered together. This year the event will move to a virtual platform, allowing more people to participate in sessions while adhering to safe gathering policies. Curriculum tracts will be available for all levels: from beginners in this work, to nonprofit leaders, to seasoned organizers.

  • Racial Equity - Sessions designed to advance understanding of and implementation of racial equity capacity building.
  • Opportunity to Thrive - Sessions that directly address the social and economic barriers to thriving, racially equitable communities.
