Many complicated and confusing issues related to the treatment of people of color at the hands of police and racial disparities in education, employment and the criminal justice system have been the subject of discussion and action in Madison. As a way of contributing to this discussion, Rick Orton, a PLATO member, developed the course “Racial Injustice and Inequality in Madison, Wisconsin” which was offered as part of PLATO’s fall 2015 semester.
A major part of the course featured presentations on topics of racial injustice and inequality by Madison leaders involved in these issues. These were video recorded in order to share with other PLATO members and the broader Madison community.
PLATO is able to make the following video presentations available to the community with the generous assistance of the Madison Community Foundation (MCF). PLATO hopes these video presentations will contribute to the awareness and understanding of community members as each consider actions they may take to address racial injustice and inequality in our community.
