100 Days Summit for Civil Rights will be presented 10 a.m.-1 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 11, on Zoom.
LEXINGTON, Ky. (Feb. 10, 2021) — Faculty from the University of Kentucky College of Education’s Education and Civil Rights Initiative in collaboration with the NAACP are participating in the Summit for Civil Rights 2021 — First 100 Days Briefing. The online event is designed to provide U.S. leaders with research and analysis on issues impacting racial justice and economic inequality.
“A president’s first 100 days in office are considered a touchstone — a gauge for the level of impact that will be made. As our leaders create policies surrounding critical issues caused by the pandemic, a battered economy and racial injustices, we are focused on serving as a voice to help inform these approaches,” said Gregory Vincent, executive director of the Education and Civil Rights Initiative, housed within the Department of Educational Policy Studies and Evaluation at the UK College of Education, where Vincent serves as a professor.
