Let’s Talk @ Lunch at Curt’s Cafe
Dec 12 @ 1:30 pm – 2:30 pm

Let's Talk at Lunch logoAs 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, have a cup of coffee or eat lunch, and YWCA provides a trained facilitator. All are welcome!
