Community Conversation on Race Relations in America

Community Conversation on Race Relations in America

Uplift Community High School and Uptown Church partner together twice a year to host a public conversation for the neighborhood. Each discussion features a diverse panel of powerful and intelligent voices that help us address issues we face as a community.

Our panel will discuss the idea of race as a social construct and talk about ways we can improve our connections, deepen our relationships, and build stronger communities. Our panelists will also share their thoughts on how we can collectively address issues of equality, ensuring that all ethnic identities are valued as an integral part of the fabric of our community, city, and nation.

Date/Time May 20 2019, 6:30pm - 8:00pm
