Co-sponsored by the Center and ERASE Racism
Long Island is one of the most racially segregated regions in the country. Isolation from one another has created fear and divisions. We need your voice in a courageous conversation that moves us forward. If you want a more inclusive Long Island, let’s work together to create change.
Register today for the first in a series of community conversations that will be taking place across Long Island. In the first forum we will increase our shared understanding of structural racism, its history on Long Island, and the implications. Through interactive exercises and conversations , we will explore what can be done to achieve the many benefits of more inclusive communities.
Please register soon – space is limited.
6 pm check-in and light dinner. Program begins 6:30.
