The Racial Generation Gap: Implications for Our County and Our Democracy

The Racial Generation Gap: What does it mean for Whatcom County? What does it mean for democracy?

This educational program offered an exploration of the changing demographics our country is experiencing, specifically the opportunities and challenges that face Whatcom County and our League as we address issues of equity, diversity and inclusion, as all of us strive to make democracy work. The program video is available thanks to the Center for New Media.
