Huddle For Change
Huddle For Change:
The Wealth Gap
What Is “Huddle For Change”?
“Huddle for Change’ is a partnership between the Super Bowl LV Host Committee, NFL Inspire Change, and Community Tampa Bay to welcome community members and local leaders to participate in an open and honest discussion about systemic racism and racial inequalities.
Huddle for Change is a community-wide dialogue between various community stakeholders. The evidence-based programming will draw from recent studies conducted 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 grassroots activists, non-profit organizations, academic institutions, corporations, and business leaders to discuss the data findings, their own lived experiences, and tangible action steps our community can implement to eliminate systemic injustices in the Tampa Bay community.
What Topics Are Being Discussed In The “Huddle For Change” Event Series?
The six-part series is designed to intentionally engage individuals of all ages in cross-cultural interaction with those who don’t look like them, live like them or love like them. The initiative aims to have a positive impact on relationships across identities and reduce behaviors informed and perpetuated by stereotypes.
Huddle for Change falls under the Forever 55 legacy Program’s Systemic Justice pillar, one of six designed to give back to the Tampa Bay community and leave a lasting impact, long after the Super Bowl has been played.
The following topics will be discussed in the series:
