“Our open and honest community conversations provide an opportunity to not only more deeply explore race equity related to the five topics but also to craft individual and community actions to mitigate inequities and build a more inclusive community where everyone has a chance to prosper,” said Tammy Briant Spratling, CEO Community Tampa Bay.

Huddle for Change is a community-wide dialogue between various community members. The evidence-based programming will draw from recent studies by the Tampa Bay Partnership, including the Tampa Bay Racial Sentiment Survey and Regional Equity Report conducted by Down & St. Germain Research. Community Tampa Bay will partner with local credit unions and financial institutions to discuss the data finding, their own lived experience, and important foundations of understanding of the racial wealth gap for our community to take proactive actions towards dismantling wealth inequality in Tampa Bay.
