A Community Dialogue About Race

In orange: A community dialogue about race

Though we learn about the evils of slavery and the triumphs of the Civil Rights Movement in history class, issues of racial justice and equality are still part of our society today. Since the recent deaths of Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, and George Floyd, those issues have been front and center.

YWCA invites the community to participate in a conversation with members of our own community about race, justice, equality, inequality, and what can be done to create an equal and just society. Our panelists will answer questions from a moderator and the community using their own experiences, expertise, and opinions. We hope to have a productive, educational, and inspirational dialogue and look forward to hearing from our wonderful panelists!
