6:00 pm VIP wine reception with filmmaker, Tim Wise

7:00 Screening of the documentary film, White Like Me

8:15 Discussion with Tim Wise, moderated by JayVon Muhammad

About the Film

This documentary film offers a stunning reassessment of the American ideal of meritocracy. White Like Me offers a fascinating look back at the race-based white entitlement programs that built the American middle class. For years, Tim Wise’s bestselling books and spellbinding lectures have challenged some of our most basic assumptions about race in America. White Like Me is the first film to bring the full range of his work to the screen – to show how white privilege continues to shape individual attitudes, electoral politics, and government policy in ways too many white people never stop to consider.

Sponsorship Opportunities

This event will appeal to individuals seeking to learn more about structural inequities facing Bay Area residents of color. In a county where 3% of the population is African American, and 30% of Black residents “live” in San Quentin, we cannot deny the lack of access to opportunity.

Support Programs that Make an Impact on Racial Inequity in Marin

Social Determinants of Health mean that a patient’s zip code has a greater impact on wellbeing than their genetic code – poverty and illness are directly correlated, as are wealth and health. provides wraparound services to keep people healthy. Programs like the summer Quality of Life Road TripThe Defenders and Girl Power support Black youth in grades 6-12. When young people live in trauma, they are more likely to struggle in school and have chronic illness later in life (such as depression, diabetes and cardiovascular disease).

Marin Grassroots informs, educates and engages communities and their leaders on topics related to public policy, civic engagement and leadership development. Our work is guided by the Marin County Equal Voice Platf
orm.  This event launches a new membership campaign where people can influence policy. Now, more than ever, we need to be involved to protect the strides we’ve made, and to insure the march to equity is not halted.
