2024 Equity Tour- Austin

March 27 @ 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM


Join us for an intimate discussion at The Texas Equity Tour- Austin visit, slated for March 27 2024 and driven by CHILDREN AT RISK (C@R), serves as a vital platform devoted to tackling systemic racism and its detrimental effects on Texas children and families. Rooted in principles of racial equity, this event zooms in on the critical topic of PreK-Grade 3 alignments during its stop in Austin, Texas. Leveraging insights from the Texas Racial Equity Collaborative’s (TREC) seminal report, “State of Inequity: Dreams Deferred,” published in 2023, the tour aims to meticulously examine the intricacies of PreK-Grade 3 alignments and their profound impact on educational equity. Through tailored engagements with a diverse array of stakeholders, including elected officials, media outlets, and community partners, the tour will delve deep into the multifaceted challenges faced by communities of color, encompassing fair justice, educational equity, health disparities, and beyond. 

As the tour navigates through regional stops in North Texas, West Texas, Central Texas, and the Gulf Coast, it will facilitate in-depth discussions, press conferences, and presentations, shedding light on the specific hurdles and successes unique to each locality. With a primary mission to foster meaningful dialogue, gather invaluable community feedback, and spotlight effective initiatives and collaborations combatting racial inequities, the Texas Equity Tour is poised to lay the groundwork for future research, education, and advocacy endeavors spearheaded by C@R and TREC. At its core, this initiative represents a collective effort to dismantle systemic barriers and pave the way for success for Texas children, young adults, and families, ultimately propelling the cause of racial equity and fostering a more just and inclusive society. 


This event is presented by CHILDREN AT RISK in partnership with the Texas Family Leadership Council (TXFLC), the Texas Racial Equity Collaborative (TREC), and United Way of Greater Austin- Success By 6.
