Indiaspora Civil Rights Town Hall
June 4th – Virtual
Participants (From Left to Right): DJ Patil (first U.S. Chief Data Scientist, serving in the Obama administration); Vanita Gupta (President and CEO of The Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights); and Rev. Carl McCluster (Senior Pastor, Shiloh Baptist Church in Bridgeport, Connecticut.)
In light of the recent death of George Floyd, acts of police brutality, ensuing protests and civil unrest, Indiaspora held a Civil Rights Town Hall to discuss what this means for race relations in the U.S., how the Indian-American community can show intra-racial solidarity during this time, and how we can become agents to end systemic racism.
