WEEK 1

Sharing Understanding

Throughout this week, expect to engage with content on race and other issues of equity not only in our country, but also, specifically within our community. At the end of this week, we hope that all participants will walk away with a shared understanding of our country and our community’s past with race. When sharing out and connecting with others this week around this learning, remember that we are all at different points in our journey, and we are all here to support each other’s growth.
