Yesterday, Thursday, April 21st, 6-9pm, Rethinking Racism discussion continued at the New Thought Unity Center. The Future of Rethinking Racism: what is it time to let go of and what is it time to embrace? This was the question of the evening for the third installment of Rethinking Racism. Attendees were challenged to move beyond discussions of the complexities of racism, towards identifying their respective roles in addressing the issue. Of course time limitations made it difficult to fully develop these ideas, so the planning committee invites you to assist us in developing the next course of action.
Join us Tuesday, April 26, 2016, 1-3pm at the Intercultural Justice and Peace Center, 215 E 14th Street, Cincinnati, OH 45202 to continue moving ahead.
