The Equity Center

A UVA Democracy Initiative center for the redress of inequity through community-engaged scholarship

Redressing 400 Years of Inequality

The Equity Center will launch a “400 Years of Inequality” observance in Charlottesville to establish a“Redressing Inequality” program for public colleges and universities throughout the Commonwealth of Virginia. The Equity Center will convene Virginia’s public institutions of higher education in Spring 2020 to collectively commit to a future of redress in our local communities and to set in motion collective efforts at redress and reparation. The Equity Center will model this annual convening after the American Hospital Association’s (AHA) Equity Pledge to Act Campaign.
