Let’s Talk @ Lunch: Race Against Hate edition (virtual)
Wednesday, June 10, 12:00-1:00 pm
Please join us on Zoom for a special Race Against Hate…in place edition of Let’s Talk @ Lunch, an informal facilitated discussion of current events through a racial equity lens. We’ll discuss Ahmaud Arbery, the connection to Ricky Byrdsong, and what it feels like to be a Black man out for a run.
This is a free event and anyone 17 years and older is welcome. Registration is required so we can send you the link to join discussion.
About Let’s Talk @ Lunch
As we learn to talk THROUGH the issue of racism (instead of around it), we need to share a common language, and deepen our understanding by looking at events and institutions through a racial equity lens.
One opportunity for such practice is our “Let’s Talk @ Lunch” program. Participants gather and YWCA provides a trained facilitator. Let’s Talk @ Lunch takes place regularly at the following times and locations (check calendar for updates). All are welcome!
