Creating a Vision of a Racially Equitable Montgomery County, Maryland

Last October, WRAG's Racial Equity Working Group partnered with IMPACT Silver Spring to answer the question, "What Would a Racially Equitable Montgomery County Look Like?" We brought together about 40 community members and local funders diverse in race, ethnicity, age, affiliations, and vocations to connect with one another, learn about the historical roots of today’s racial inequities, generate ideas for what is needed to advance racial equity, and envision how those advances might look in the county.
