Future 50 class of 2022:See who made the list

Idea: As a white female, I am acutely aware of the privileges I receive because of my skin color. We must continue on the path to racial justice. As we’ve heard many leaders say, it is not enough to not be racist. You must be anti-racist. And white community members must be a part of dismantling the systems that were designed to keep our fellow Black Americans disenfranchised. I propose the Future 50 class tackle racial justice and awareness of how Columbus has not been immune to systemic racism. Our city has its own history of redlining, segregation and discrimination that we need to address. Our class would collect this information and produce an educational campaign to raise awareness and bring about change.
