About the event:
This is a town hall to discuss the impact of race and racism during this election and ways the community can heal moving forward.
This election cycle revealed that we have a long way to go in our communities as it relates to race relations and healing. In the last year we have seen the continuation of police brutality, a presidential candidate who used race and racism as a way to mobilize his base, and a community in desperate need of healing. The purpose of this summit is to:
*Discuss the implications of race and racism within our community after this election cycle.
*Discuss opportunities and ways to heal as a community, by digging into: what does healing look like, and discovering what will it take for our community to come together.
*Determine next steps that can take us forward, by looking at solutions and community organizing opportunities.
*Doors open at 5:45p.m.
