First-of-its-kind event being hosted by the Center on Race and Social Problems



The very first national gathering of Race, Ethnicity, and Poverty Centers is being hosted by the Center on Race and Social Problems June 6-7, 2013. The summit presents an opportunity to bring together individuals who are addressing many of America’s most critical and long-standing problems.
