Unity360 is a series of community discussions about the ways in which race and racism shape our society and impact our daily interactions. Participants will learn skills to identify racism and formulate responses that create a foundation for empathy and understanding. The goals of the series are:
- Promote awareness of historical and casual racism
- Provide participants with tools for diffusing and rejecting bigoted language and behaviors
