In 2020, Wanderful created the Moving Forward Anti-Racism Town Hall as a solutions-oriented dialogue for Black creators, allies, and brands to discuss actionable steps to foster anti-racism in the travel industry. After our first two successful events involving 500 content creators and travel industry insiders, we invite you to join us at our third and final event on 5 February 2021.
