2019 - No Racial Justice Without Political Justice


About the Event

At It’s Time to Talk™: Forums on Race 2019, attendees will engage in the concept of how racial justice cannot be achieved without political justice by:

  • Hearing from local storytellers
  • Learning and gathering information from non-partisan organizations committed to political justice
  • Participating in facilitated dialogue at their table about their lived experiences of race

It's Time to Talk (IT2T) is an engaging event which:

  • Educates about facets of racism, equity and inclusion
  • Engages in dialogue, discussion and self-reflection
  • Empowers communities to lead sustainable change

We believe the strength of our future depends on our ability to develop new skills around inclusion and equity, understand the realities of racism today, and commit ourselves to action.
