Today at noon at Clinton School – Center on Community Philanthropy 2019 Advancing Equity Awards Reception

The Center on Community Philanthropy at the University of Arkansas Clinton School of Public Service will announce the recipients of the 2019 Advancing Equity Award at a reception celebrating the third annual National Day of Racial Healing.

The program will take place at 12 noon today (January 22) at Sturgis Hall.

The Advancing Equity Award is given to organizations that are using innovative solutions to address racial inequities in their communities and advance progress toward inclusion. Award recipients will be presented with support to continue and enhance their efforts.

The National Day of Racial Healing (NDORH) is an opportunity for people, organizations, and communities across the United States to call for racial healing, bring people together in their common humanity, and take collective action to create a more just and equitable world. NDORH is a part of the W.K. Kellogg Foundation’s Truth, Racial Healing & Transformation (TRHT) effort – a national and community-based process to plan for and bring about transformational and sustainable change and to address the historic and contemporary effects of racism.
