Dr. Epsy Alejandra Campbell Barr, Chair of the UN Forum on People of African Descent, and Gabriela Ramos, Assistant Director General for Social and Human Sciences at UNESCO, will introduce the event. Speakers will include Peter Flegel (Executive Director of the Federal Anti-Racism Secretariat), Claudia Olivia Morales Reza (President of the National Council to Prevent Discrimination) and Desirée Cormier Smith (US Special Representative for Racial Equity and Justice), as well as leaders from civil society organizations spearheading anti-racism initiatives on the ground.
