On April 22, 2022, the Evans School of Public Policy and Governance hosted a conversation about how race influences the shaping and implementation of public policy.  

During the event, Dean Sandfort was joined by Dr. Jennifer Chudy who presented her research on white “racial sympathy.” Washington state policy leaders Sarita Siqueiros Thornburg and Dr. Stephan Blanford reflected on how changing attention to racial justice continues influencing conditions in Washington at the state and local levels.
