The “Understanding Racial Disparities in Alachua County” report detailed disparities in employment, criminal justice, education, housing and poverty in Gainesville. How do we as a community address this?
Storytelling is a powerful art form creating connections and understanding. Self Narrate has been hosting a storytelling series to give a face and a voice to the statistics of those most affected by these disparities. Community leaders have also been invited to tell their personal stories, and of the challenges faced in addressing systemic racism. Through these stories we can build bridges and begin to work together.
The three themes addressed in this series were:
9/10: Housing and Transportation
10/1: Criminal Justice
Self Narrate partnered with UnseenAmerica to hep produce a series of portraits and stories from the Voices of Gainesville series. Click here to see them all!
