The program will focus on the local chapter’s history and current initiatives around civic engagement and diversity and inclusion within the Syracuse community. The speakers also will discuss ways that staff can become involved in local diversity and inclusion initiatives.
The NAACP chapter is one of several community organizations that EOIRS is working to partner with for programs and other activities in the coming year.
