What Does Equity Look Like? Why Citizenship?

In this new political era, these questions are more relevant than ever. Born from the YBCA 100 Summit, Public Square gathers our community’s collective imagination around crucial questions. Two cohorts of YBCA Fellows have been investigating questions of equity and citizenship for the past year, and on Saturday, August 19, we’ll reveal their answers and offer them up for community response. Join us for an afternoon designed to provoke societal change at a time when it’s most needed.

*No one will be turned away for lack of funds.
