Description

Race Together (6-Part Series Sept. 10 - Oct. 15)

Uncover * Reflect * Unite

6-Week Community Series

Sundays * Sept 10 - Oct 15, 2017 * 3pm - 5pm

Location: 5300 Poplar Tent Road, Concord, NC


Discussing Race/Racism can be intense, but it’s an issue most of us would like to understand better. Race Together is an engaging and informative series for those that would like to learn more on the topic of race in the U.S. This 6-week series will shed light on historical and social context leading to our current racial situation. We will look at how we got here; why we remain disconnected; and most importantly, how we can be part of the solution? Meetings will include media screenings, guided discussions, moments of reflection, impactful activities and resources all in a community safe space. Each weekly session varies in content and progressively builds on information as we go. This is a free community event that is open to all whom have a geniune interest in seeing racial division and disparity gaps closed.

The room environment will be one of learning, discovery, and sharing. Each session will open with Agreed Upon Ground Rules that will make discussions a safe place for all as we examine these sometimes difficult topics.

Reserve your seat today!
