Project Description

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.
