YWCA Hosts Racial Justice Forum

CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

More than 100 Coastal Bend residents learned how to improve race relations during the 8th Annual Racial Justice Forum held Monday afternoon.

The event, hosted by the YWCA, featured guest speaker Dr. Ernestine Garner.

Executive Director, Nancy Wesson-Dodd, says the forum is designed to address issues that continue to challenge people of every race, such as equality at the work place, pay and social issues.

"I think it's a sign that we are more accepting of different ethnicity, but certainly we have a long way to go," Wesson-Dodd said.
