Squarecast Episode 7 | July 2020
Equality in Life: The Role of Government



The Equality in Life series is part of our Local Color Project, made possible by the generous support of Bank of America.

As our beloved Tallahassee/Leon County community joins others around the nation in the important unfinished work to make the promise of equality a reality, constructive conversation helps to illuminate the path to progress and meaningful change. In that spirit, a group of community leaders shares diverse perspectives about critical and relevant issues in a special series of Town Hall presentations — presented by The Village Square in partnership with Bethel Missionary Baptist Church, the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Northern District of Florida, and Sachs Media Group.

The final program in our series “Equality in Life: The Role of Government,” is facilitated by Lila Jaber, President of the Jaber Group and Founder of the Florida’s Women in Energy Leadership Forum.

You can view the results of the Sachs Media Group Survey on equality in our hometown here.

Mentioned in this program:

Programming during the pandemic is made possible by a recovery grant from the Knight Foundation, through the Community Foundation of North Florida and a CARES grant from Florida Humanities with the support of National Endowment for the Humanities. We are deeply grateful for their support.

Our gratitude to Bank of America for making Local Color possible.

Local Color would not have been possible this year without generous financial support from The Bank of America Foundation, which invested over $200 million annually to support pressing community needs. We thank them for making it possible that — in this time of so much separation between us — this community gathers.
