The UALR Institute on Race and Ethnicity in partnership with the Institute on Government released its 12th Annual Racial Attitudes in Pulaski County Survey report. The 2014 study focuses on Values, Family, and Community. This year’s forum kicked off UALR’s first annual Diversity Week and attracted a cross-section of citizens from local and surrounding areas.
To discuss some of the survey findings and implications was a stellar panel of practitioners and subject matter experts. Dr. LaVerne Bell-Tolliver, Associate Professor of the UALR School of Social Work, moderated the discussion.
The panelists included:
Dr. David Briscoe, Professor, UALR Department of Sociology
Julie Hall, Director, UALR Children International
Paul Kelly, Senior Policy Analyst, Arkansas Advocates for Children and Families
Keesa Smith, Deputy Director, Arkansas Department of Human Services
The objective of the yearly survey is to shed light on contemporary issues, as well as to stimulate thinking about how to develop more effective practices, services and policies to address racial inequities.
