About the event
Join us for a facilitated, virtual, community conversation to begin exploring our own experiences, perspectives, and blind spots about race and racism. How can we as a community start to unravel such complex and deeply rooted challenges? Using a virtual and inclusive format, we will discover what happens when we confront difficult topics with open and humble hearts. REGISTRATION
