Arcus Center for Social Justice Leadership


The voice of youth is often overlooked in discussions about race relations, say representatives from several Kalamazoo organizations. That's why they're hosting two separate events over the next couple of days, starting with the Kalamazoo Youth Summit on Racism on Saturday. The next program is the Youth Lives Matter Community Forum on Monday. The hope is not only to let young people share their experiences but to offer solutions.

The Center says the facility is the first of its kind in the world.

Center's Academic Director Lisa Brock will take over day to day leadership for now
