Event Details

We want to help strengthen the community by facilitating important and difficult discussions on race relations and unconscious bias. Our hope is that our community rebuilds by talking to one another, learning more about communities we have limited exposure to, and bridging our divides through awareness and education.

Since the death of Michael Brown in Ferguson in the summer of 2014, our communities locally, nationally, and globally have been impacted by an increasing amount of conversations about race and related issues.

From #BlackLivesMatter to Mizzou to Sandra Bland to the recent killings of both Black men and police, our cultural consciousness around racial bias has been heightened, and we are being expected to understand these concepts with an increased level of dexterity.

Though the core of our conversations has remained the same, the ways we talk about them and the stories we tell have changed. We have listened, talked, and learned. And many of us are ready to do more.

Our Listen. Talk. Learn More session is designed for participants who have already attended one of our Listen. Talk. Learn sessions and have begun to ask, “What’s next?”

The key objectives for the LTL More are:

  • Explore how the realities of power and authority influence our perceptions about the world
  • Troubleshoot common points of conflict when discussing race
  • Define helpful terminology and the impact of intersectionality on race.
