Let’s Talk @ Lunch
Oct 19 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 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 and YWCA provides a trained facilitator. All are welcome!
