“Continuing Conversations on Race: What Is YOUR Vision for Racial Justice?”

January 27 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Abbot Public Library and the Marblehead Racial Justice Team are hosting “Continuing Conversations on Race” at the Library on Monday, January 27th from 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm.

 

This is the month of Martin Luther King, Jr.’s birthday and also the time for New Year’s resolutions. How better to acknowledge them than to have a conversation about our vision for Racial Justice in 2020.

 

 

Our conversation will begin with a general discussion of the current state of racial justice in Marblehead and in Massachusetts. Then, in smaller groups, we will discuss what our personal vision for racial justice is, and some actions we will take in 2020 to advance that vision. To conclude, we will share our visions and actions, and perhaps we will hear some ideas that will prompt us to add a few more to our list.

 

Please join us for an invigorating conversation and some ideas to start this new year of action for racial justice.

 

These ongoing conversations are a safe and welcoming place in which we explore our own privilege, biases, and questions, and where we continue to learn and grow by hearing each other’s stories so that we can best make a difference. It is a place for listening, conversation, and engagement.
