July 9, Racial Justice Discussions

Kent Workman will lead a Racial Justice discussion on Thursday, July 9th via zoom at 7:00 pm. Check the website calendar for meeting information. We will plane for about 1 ½ hours.  We would invite you to read or via one or more of the items on the list of resources you suggested.  (But please join us on the 9th whether you have read/viewed something or not).

This will just be a start of our discussion.  In the weeks ahead we hope to include some speakers to share thoughts and ideas with us.

Also please fell free to continue to suggest to Kent things that might be helpful.
