Undoing Institutionalized Racism Community Organizing & Anti-Racist Principles

January 30th 7-9 PM
St. James Episcopal Church,  1941 Webberville Rd., Austin, TX.

We invite you to meet Ron Chisom, Executive Director and Co-Founder of the People’s Institute for Survival and Beyond,  as we honor him for his 40 years of community organizing across the United States to undo Institutionalized Racism, and all of its manifestations. Ron served as the main plaintiff of Ronald Chisom v. Charles E. Roemer, Governor of Louisiana et. al.. The “Chisom Case” challenged the Louisiana State Supreme Court to achieve equal representation for the predominately Black city of New Orleans.

This is also an opportunity to  learn about local efforts to eliminate institutionalized racism. Representatives from local groups, such as Undoing Racism Austin, Peace Through Pie Foundation, St. James Episcopal Church, and the Building Bridges Program of the Travis County Sheriff’s Department, will describe ongoing activities that you can get involved in to create a future without racial disparities for the Austin community.
