Let’s Talk Race: Anchor Story Interviews

As part of the Let’s Talk Race conversation card project we interviewed incredible people in Vermont who are doing work around each of the issue areas in the Let’s Talk Race card deck (Wealth + Income, The (in)Justice System, Education, Environment, Health, Intersections and Migration). We want to highlight the work of Vermonters in each area to help breathe life into the data, move us beyond statistics, and anchor that issue in positive change.
