Description

 

The Lakeshore Ethnic Diversity Alliance Summit on Race and Inclusion examines the effects of racial disparities and strategies for their elimination at a day-long conference involving hundreds of participants from across the state of Michigan.

2001 began the first year in what was expected to be a five-year Lakeshore Region Summit on Racism series. In 2006, due to the Summit's success and high demand, it became a bi-annual event. Today, the Summit is a sold-out annual event. The day-long conference is designed to engage community members and key stakeholders in eliminating racial barriers in the lakeshore region.

Participants come to learn how discrimination affects communities economically and socially; understand how racial inclusion benefits everyone; learn tools to make a positive difference in our community; and partner with others to develop concrete plans for shaping a prosperous, inclusive future.

LEDA thanks this year's Event Partner, the Community Foundation for Muskegon County, as well as Diamond Sponsor--W.K. Kellogg Foundation--and Platinum Sponsors--The Brooks Family, Meijer Inc., and Spectrum Health--for their support in making this year's Summit on Race and Inclusion a reality!

So we look forward to having you join us at Summit 2017 at the Frauenthal Center where nationally recognized leaders will share best practices and strategies for Moving Toward Justice in our region.
