The Heat Is On!
Elaine Gross, president and founder of ERASE Racism, will be my guest next Monday, 8/29, from 6-7pm on BlogTalk. You won't want to miss this one, especially if you want to know what you can be doing now to fight racism in its current and most deadliest form. Today's form of racism is worse because it is virtually unrecognizable. Some people even think racism is dead! Well, it's not dead! It has just gone underground aka it's institutional and structural. Ms. Gross, an MSW, will explain it all plus how we can all be more proactive.
Yes, I am glad Martin is being honored, but let's not get distracted from the cold, hard fact that King's dream has yet to be realized in this country.
ERASE Racism is a regional organization that leads public policy advocacy campaigns and related programming initiatives to promote racial equity in housing, public school education and healthcare primarily on Long Island. Elaine Gross, MSW, founder and president, has made it her mission to explore the systemic causes of social, politcal, and economic inequities and find ways to counteract those inequities. The ERASE stands for Education, Research, Advocacy, Support to Eliminate Racism.
