This third annual Racial Equity & Inclusion Film Series continues to welcome new participants into our neighborhood’s journey of understanding and demanding racial equity. Diversity and social justice are core values of DSCDO, and systemic racism is antithetical to our vision of diverse, sustainable, and desirable neighborhoods where all people thrive.
