Gerald Garth is working with Center leadership and staff to create a racial equity plan for the Center to further the dismantling of systemic racism. “Creating spaces for folks to ask questions, to tell the truth about where they stand, what they think, and to be open to understanding new experiences is really, really key,” he explains.
