Montgomery County community members and organizations are encouraged to host community conversations on racial equity with their friends, neighbors and colleagues and to report their findings back using a survey tool.

Some guiding questions for the conversation include:

Why does racial equity matter?
Are you impacted by racial inequity?
What changes do you want to see to promote racial equity and social justice?
