May 13, The Charleston Forum hosted the former Georgia Minority Leader, Stacey Abrams, where she spoke about inequities in education, economics, and voting rights.
The next conversation will be hosted online on May 19 at 2:30 p.m. with U.S. Senator Tim Scott. Senator Scott will be discussing racial disparities and his guidance on minority outreach across our communities. The Charleston Forum plans to announce additional speakers to discuss our community’s most important issues as they lead up to the annual event, which will also be hosted online.
This June, in commemoration for our community members lost at Mother Emanuel five years ago and in recognition of the 350th Anniversary of Charleston’s founding, The Charleston Forum will reveal the results of a survey showing the attitudes residents in our tri-county area have about issues of race. The survey concentrates on The Charleston Forum’s principal topics of education, economics, policing and criminal justice, and the future of the past.
