ReCity Roundtables

The ReCity Roundtable is a monthly TED-style speaker series that uses the power of story-telling to spotlight community leaders who are tackling complex social issues through innovation and collaboration.


Mass Incarceration and Mass Employment

Over 70 million people in the US have a record. That's nearly 1 in 3 adults. Unfortunately, being released presents a whole new set of obstacles, perhaps none more difficult than securing and keeping stable employment. 

Come hear from Juan Nelson about how StepUp Durham is building bridges to opportunity for our justice-involved neighbors and how you can help them close the gap!


Adding equity to entreprenuership

Durham is a city on the rise, but is the rising tide truly lifting all boats? Learn from serial entrepreneur and innovator Geraud Staton about how The Helius Foundation is intentionally adding equity into the entrepreneurial ecosystem and building pathways to prosperity for all.


The Gentrification question

Learn from Housing for New Hope's Olive Joyner as she shares from her unique experience leading the fight against homelessness in Durham. Find out what we can do to solve the affordable housing crisis and ensure gentrification happens with justice for all.
