PolicyLink and Well-Being Trust: Advancing Well-Being by Transcending the Barriers of Whiteness Fireside ChatBack
Jul 23, 2021 11:00 am - 12:00 pm PT
PolicyLink and Well Being Trust recently released a new resource, “Advancing Well-being by Transcending the Barriers of Whiteness,” as an impetus for deep nationwide dialogue and critical policy change in this moment of racial reckoning on long-standing injustice and national polarization.
Join the leaders of PolicyLink and Well Being Trust, Michael McAfee and Tyler Norris, as they engage in a deeply honest fireside chat moderated by co-author Victor Rubin of PolicyLink. These leaders share a commitment to the type of dialogue that highlights our interdependence and is a catalyst for much-needed policy change.
From sharing personal stories to highlighting strategies to decenter whiteness, this conversation has something for everyone. We’ll also share some insight into the report’s companion piece, a Community Dialogue Guide to “motivate and guide the shaping of a new narrative with the start of a well-being policy roadmap, offering ways to rethink familiar social and economic policy problems by ‘de-centering whiteness’.” The guide can be used by any group, and is particularly valuable for faith leaders, community leaders, and government officials.
