Below, we hear from the woman at the helm of Facing Race who is making it all happen: Leslie Grant-Spann.
“Detroit is home to some of the most visionary organizing in the United States, which made it a clear choice of locale for bringing together advocates from throughout the country to build a multi-racial movement for advancing equity,” said Leslie Grant-Spann, Race Forward’s Conference & Convenings Director. “Facing Race 2018 is an opportunity to lift up authentic narratives about Detroit while amplifying local struggles, solutions, and collective leadership to overcome racially disparate outcomes.”
