CHARLESTON, South Carolina – Local nonprofit, The Charleston Forum, is continuing the advancement of conversations about race in the community and will host a discussion with local leaders to discuss Charleston County’s low incoming housing proposal.
On October 6, The Charleston Forum will speak with Josh Dix of the Charleston Trident Association of Realtors, Rev. Bill Stanfield, CEO of Metanoia and Councilwoman Jenny Honeycutt, about racial inequalities as it pertains to economics and affordable housing in the Lowcountry and across the state.
The Charleston Forum has adjusted their approach to addressing major lowcountry racial issues because of the COVID-19 pandemic. In addition to the Forum’s annual event, which was held virtually this year, they have hosted several conversations online and plans to continue those efforts. The event on October 6 is the second of four conversations the Forum will host in the fall of 2020. Each conversation will focus on one of the Forum’s pillars – criminal justice, education, economics and the future of the past.
This month’s online conversation will take place on Tuesday, October 6 at 4 p.m. You can register here: https://us02web.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_3ZX1bDIST52C4UKnkE-O0w or at www.thecharlestonforum.com.
