Women & Politics presents:

We have two great guests today on Women & Politics talking about race, space, and the whiteness of disability.

Ebony Walden is the Founder and Principal Consultant at Ebony Walden Consulting (EWC), an urban strategy firm based in Richmond, Virginia. At EWC, she works with a wide range of organizations to design and facilitate meetings, training, strategic plans and community engagement processes that explore race, equity and the creation of more just and inclusive communities. Before founding EWC, Ebony worked in local government and for non-profit organizations dedicated to citywide and neighborhood level revitalization. Currently, Ebony is an adjunct professor at Virginia Commonwealth University where she teaches Diversity, Equity and Inclusion in the City. Ebony’s work has been featured in  The HillRichmond Times-Dispatch and The Nature of Cities. She holds a Masters in Urban and Environmental Planning from the University of Virginia and a Bachelors in Business Administration from Georgetown University. Inspired by The Just City Essays, Ebony Walden conceived the idea of an essay collection focused on Richmond (The Richmond Racial Equity Essays) in hopes of bringing together thought leadership and practice to advance racial equity in the region.

 

Dr. Jennifer Erkulwater is Chair of the Political Science Department and Professor of Political Science at the University of Richmond. Her areas of expertise are in Social Welfare Politics, Public Policy and American Politics. Her scholarship focuses on and public policy and the social activism around poverty, disability, and race. Dr. Erkulwater has published numerous articles and two books on the politics of social welfare programs in the US. She was elected to the National Academy of Social Insurance for her work on Supplemental Security Income. Her current research seeks to understand why disability politics is so white – that is, why people of color are missing from disability politics and what the implications of that absence are for how social justice is enacted.

Women & Politics presents:

“As a public servant, it has been a privilege to be the voice for children who were sexually abused and for women who suffered domestic violence; for small local business owners who were the victims of theft  or burglaries that devastated their livelihood; and for victims of violent crimes including rape, robbery, and murder.  As a Sector Prosecutor for more than 10 years,  I have been actively involved with various neighborhood associations and community groups throughout Richmond.  Recognizing the need to address the root causes of criminal behavior, I worked with other city stakeholders to create one of the first Mental Health dockets in the state in 2011. Prosecutors have a duty to  consider both the victim and the offender and to use our discretion to create equitable and proportional sanctions that will allow an offender to redress harm and also to successfully reintegrate into our community.
