<<On his first day in office, President Joseph R. Biden signed the Executive Order On Advancing Racial Equity and Support for Underserved Communities Through the Federal Government.
It states that “[e]ntrenched disparities in our laws and public policies, and in our public and private institutions, have often denied that equal opportunity to individuals and communities.” It tasks the Federal Government to “pursue a comprehensive approach to advancing equity for all, including people of color and others who have been historically underserved, marginalized, and adversely affected by persistent poverty and inequality.”
This panel will investigate the Biden administration’s first steps to confronting systemic racism and racial inequality. It will also discuss how we, as citizens, and society as a whole can work towards more just communities and institutions through educational and social reform, new alliances and innovative ideas on both sides of the Atlantic.>>
