Project Code: L-STATE-GUY-1
|Project Title||Organize virtual speakers on anti-racism for Guyana|
|Project Summary||Organize speakers for a series of discussions on anti-racism work. Seek out speakers on the topic and help the Embassy organize virtual programs.|
|Agency||Department of State|
|Number of Interns||1|
The topic of racial justice is not only relevant for the U.S., but Guyana also has a history of racial dis-harmony between African, Indian, Chinese, European and Indigenous Guyanese. The Embassy would like to tackle this issue this year, since the topic is even more taboo in Guyana than in the U.S. Your job would be to seek out interesting speakers on the topic of anti-racism work in the U.S. and help the Embassy organize virtual programming.

There are partners the Embassy can connect you with for consultation on what may work, specifically from the younger generation. Our Youth Action Network is embarking on this topic as well, this year.
