Racial Justice 2020 Community Forums – Book a Keynote for Your Event

Following the national launch of our 2020 Racial Justice Presidential Candidate Scorecard featured in theRoot, Ebony, NewsOne, HuffPost and other national media, CURE is connecting with community organizations, women’s and student groups to share this resource and engage in dialogue about the issues shaping the presidential election. With Democratic primaries coming up, it’s important that voters who care about racial justice understand where the candidates stand on our issues. That’s why CURE is taking its Racial Justice 2020: Voting & Building Power for a Just Future keynote and conversation featuring CURE’s president, Dr. Judy Lubin to local communities.

If you would like to book a Racial Justice 2020 talk in your community during the months of February or March, please email cwilkinson@urbanandracialequity.org. To find out if a Racial Justice 2020 talk is already coming to your city, visit our event calendar.

Title: Racial Justice 2020: Voting & Building Power for a Just Future

Event Description: During the last decade voting rights were gutted and police killings of Black people sparked the Black Lives Matter movement and the beginning of important criminal justice reforms. It also brought the election of the first Black president followed by a Donald Trump presidency that is openly advancing a white nationalist vision of America that targets people of color, immigrants, Muslims, women, and LGBTQ people with policies that violate our rights, reinforce white supremacy and rollback efforts to advance racial justice. The next president must be willing to articulate a clear vision for racial justice that counters the conservative’s white identity agenda that is harming Black and Brown communities and that threatens to define the new decade. The Center for Urban and Racial Equity’s 2020 Racial Justice Presidential Scorecard encapsulates key components of this vision for equity and justice and tracks and scores the major candidates’ policy positions on voting rights, health care, education, reparations, environmental justice, criminal justice, immigration and other issues to help voters make an informed decision ahead of this year’s pivotal election. Join the Center for Urban and Racial Equity’s Dr. Judy Lubin for a dialogue on these issues, voter mobilization, CURE’s Presidential Scorecard and how we can build a just future together.

The scorecard is designed to elevate racial equity in the candidate selection process, push candidates to prioritize issues important to Black and brown communities, and help voters who care about racial justice make an informed decision in 2020.

Judy Lubin

Dr. Judy is an applied sociologist, racial equity changemaker, yoga and mindfulness practitioner, author, auntie, bestie and beach lover. Judy’s elemental nature is water, and with her she brings calming, reflective energy to hold space for deep listening, inner work and transformative dialogue. 

The curator of the Embodied Justice program, she hosts the accompanying podcast and co-facilitates events and dialogues focused on the collective healing and sustainability of Black changemakers.

At CURE, Dr. Judy has built transformative racial equity frameworks and change management processes that have impacted thousands of lives. She began her career focused on health disparities, recognizing that stress from societal racism can become embodied and manifested through “weathering” that prematurely ages the body and shortens the lifespan of racially marginalized communities. 

She is unapologetically committed to centering Black people and the communities that have inspired her life’s work. The daughter of Haitian immigrants, she grew up in South Florida surrounded by music, her grandmother’s herbal garden, and the struggle to make it in a country that saw her family as outsiders. 

In 2022, after experiencing multiple health emergencies coupled with burnout from the intensity of the “racial reckoning” that increased demand for CURE’s racial equity services, Judy began a process of listening to the wisdom of her body, healing old trauma wounds, and reclaiming rest and her love of mind-body healing. During this time she explored somatics, indigenous and and ancestral healing practices and earned certifications in multiple healing modalities including yoga and energy medicine.

Emerging from a place of rest and listening to what her soul wanted to share, she now weaves mindfulness, body-awareness and spiritual activism to support changemakers and organizations to regenerate their leadership and give to the world from a place of ease and wholeness. 

Long committed to promoting women’s health and wellness, she is the author of The Heart of Living Well: Six Principles for a Life of Health, Beauty and Balance.
