Walking Alone...The Blac Experience

The UCSF Memory and Aging Center’s Black Leadership Advisory Council (BLAC) presents

Walking Alone...The BLAC Experience

In response to the killing of George Floyd, along with various other social injustices impacting marginalized communities of color, BLAC was established to create a safe space for the Black community at UCSF’s Memory and Aging Center (MAC) to process direct social justice issues, help fight racism and better support the Black community. BLAC elevates matters related to diversity, equity, and inclusion and serves as an advisory council for the MAC’s executive leadership.

Black Caucus secretary Fonda Smith's skilled guidance led to the creation of this video.
