Youth & Resiliency: Community Conversation
Wednesday, July 8, 2020 | 7:00 PM - 7:45 PM.
The Midlands’ Community is in pain. Amidst the civil unrest, what discussions are taking place in your household regarding race and racism? Are you able to talk with your children about the purpose of a peaceful protest? What suggestions are you able to offer on why the demonstrations turned violent? Many of us are intimated by the potential conflict our words may incite within our children, and between one another. However, we understand our role in raising the next generation to confront racial injustice.
Please join United Way’s Virtual Youth & Resiliency Training Series in a Community Conversation as we tackle these challenging topics in an open & honest virtual forum centered around race relations in our community and country. We invite you to share your thoughts and views on how we can help our community heal.
