MAG Quarterly Meeting

October 13, 2017 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Quarterly Meeting to Focus on Issues in Racial Equity

MAG’s next quarterly membership meeting will focus on issues of racial equity, including implications for grantmaking and service delivery in our communities.  The “In the Spotlight” session will feature the W. K. Kellogg Foundation’s Truth, Racial Healing & Transformation initiative.  Mentioned briefly at our last meeting, in this session we will learn more about the design and process of the initiative, and investment opportunities as we discuss bringing the initiative to our communities.

After lunch, we will begin a more specific dialogue about race and equity in Mississippi and how it affects grantmaking, service delivery and communities across our state.  This session will be led by Portia Espy, Director of Community Building, and Jackie Martin, Community Building Manager, from the William Winter Institute for Racial Reconciliation.

The general membership meeting will be on Friday, October 13, 2017, from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., at the CAVS Extension Center, 153 Mississippi Parkway, in Canton, MS.
