Please join the Urban Equity Collaborative (UEC) for our workshop titled Reckoning: Leveraging Histories of Displacement to Achieve Equity with Corey Shaw Jr, DC Legacy Project Director at Empower DC.

Corey Shaw, Jr is a DC native with lifelong roots in Ward 7. He started working with communities in Washington, DC as the Co-Founder of the Black Broad Branch Project. In his capacity as an oral historian and chair of the policy implementation working committee, Shaw has advocated for reparations for two families whose ancestors were displaced from Chevy Chase, DC in 1928. He continues to support the project, engaging with descendants to mobilize a coalition of scholars, DC residents, and community organizations toward the goal of winning reparation in the forms of Acknowledgement, Compensation, and Education.

Register here to hear more about Corey’s work on Thursday, November 9th, 2023 from 12:00 p.m. - 2:00 p.m. in Preinkert Hall Suite 1221. In-person attendees will be served lunch.

The first part of the workshop will be a presentation by the speaker followed by a Q&A with the audience which will be livestreamed, recorded, and posted and the UEC website. In the second hour, the moderator will lead a discussion with the speaker and attendees surrounding the presentation. To ensure a comfortable and safe environment in which each participant is able to share, the UEC is requesting that the workshop portion of the event remain intimate at a 30-person capacity.
