We sponsored a Seeing White podcast discussion group with Frankfort Anti-Racism Advocates. We are working with local ministers to develop conversations about race in and between churches.
In partnership with Together Frankfort, we sponsored candidate forums before the June 23rd primary to allow residents to hear where local candidates stood on race related issues. Because of the Covid-19 pandemic, these forums were conducted virtually. Another virtual candidate forum will be conducted in September to prepare for the November 3rd election. Watch the forums on FORR's YouTube channel.
In partnership with KY Protection & Advocacy, we are working to develop a parent advocacy training this spring (postponed due to Covid-19 pandemic). In partnership with the Kentucky Historical Society, with support from the Kentucky Storytelling Association, we are creating professional development programs for area educators scheduled for September and November.
We are partnering with the Equal Justice Initiative to memorialize local lynching victims with the installation of a permanent historic marker. This event has been postponed until 2021.
