The COVID-19 public health emergency derailed a lot of progressive policy advocacy efforts in the 2020 legislative session. The 2021 session has begun and there are a flurry of reforms being considered by legislators. We’ll be discussing our legislative agenda and some of the challenges we expect in getting it executed.
Dayvon Love, the Director of Public Policy at Leaders of a Beautiful Struggle will be leading the conversation. He’ll be joined by his co-host – Dr. Khalilah M. Harris, the Managing Director for K-12 Education Policy at American Progress and non-resident senior fellow with MD Center on Economic Policy. Harris brings a unique perspective from an extensive career of working to expand access to opportunity through an equity lens in community organizing, education, education policy, youth advocacy, and building an inclusive workforce.
