San Diego World Affairs Council Is honored to support the National Conflict Resolution Center (NCRC) presentation - Race: “A Path Forward”
Thursday, August 20th 7:00-8:15pm
How do we talk about race in a way that unites and strengthens us as a community? How do we get beyond our superficial differences and see ourselves as one and the same, with our multiple enriching individualities, with more in common than not, yet with our same basic needs and emotions and hopes and dreams.
Where do we go from here? How do we get there? What can I do?
Join the conversation with leading scholars and #1 Best Sellers, Robin DiAngelo (White Fragility) and Ibram X. Kendi (How to Be An Anti-Racist), facilitated by Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Wesley Lowery. This event is also an opportunity to support A Path Forward, the National Conflict Resolution Center’s (NCRC) comprehensive response to the culture changes caused by the coronavirus pandemic and racial injustice, through a live virtual raise-the-paddle.
NCRC is addressing areas of conflict, emotion, isolation and relationships at home, in school, the workplace and throughout the community. Collective problem solving, community building and deep healing are essential to create a future that is better than before.
