In this epic moment of reckoning on systemic racism and during the lead-up to the U.S. presidential election in November, the Kroc Institute seeks to promote and support the voices of a new generation of voters: young people who experience and care about racism, sexism and other forms of prejudice and inequality, and who expect the political leadership of our country to take these issues seriously.
