Door County is not immune from racial disparity and the League of Women Voters wants residents to understand its impact on all people. The organization will hold a program in Egg Harbor on the issues of racial disparity. One of the speakers is Erica Nelson of Dane County’s Race to Equity Project. Nelson says racial disparity remains in areas such as health, education, economics and child care. She says eliminating such disparities benefits everyone.
The program is entitled “Racial Disparities in Wisconsin and Here in Door County: What Do We Know and What Are We Doing About Them?”. It’s scheduled for November 3rd at the Donald & Carol Kress Pavilion in Egg Harbor.
