Conversation About Race, Ethnicity, Culture, and More.

For real change, there needs to be real conversation. Every other Wednesday, we host an open and honest conversation about race, ethnicity, culture, and more. Each session features a short video or guest speaker to start a discussion. We encourage everyone to participate; you must be respectful and follow the rules. Our goal is to create awareness of history and challenges, and to spark dialogue. Add these sessions to your calendar
