Race & Justice

Racism and gaps among racial and ethnic groups affect education, housing, jobs, health care, and the justice system. This conversation topic is a chance to explore our experience of race and equity. Where are we and what do we aspire to for ourselves and our community?

Local Color: Individuality & Identity Politics

Do identity politics help marginalized groups get some much-needed R-E-S-P-E-C-T? Or does it unintentionally hurt men of color (and the women who love them)? Do identity politics help marginalized groups break through barriers to become who we are or does it sometimes hide what’s most unique about who we are?  Join us as Local Color panelists talk through this topic and more.  The event is free and snacks are on us.  https://www.eventbrite.com/e/local-color-individuality-identity-politics-tickets-49354945972

Virtual LRC Conversation: Police-community Relations

Living Room Conversations are a conversational bridge across issues that divide and separate us. They provide an easy structure for engaging in friendly yet meaningful conversation. These conversations are open to anyone and everyone - no prior training or experience is needed to participate. You may find that you have similar views to those in your conversation or you may find that you are as different as can be. It can be a valuable experience to let go of your expectations of what the conversation should be and focus on what it is in the moment. The National Week of Conversation topics have been chosen to encourage participation and allow for everyone to be able to share their own life experiences and viewpoints as well as actively listening to those of others.

Join us for this online (Zoom video) Living Room Conversation on the topic of Police-community Relations.
