Participants will engage in discussions about how their identities shaped how they understand racial dynamics in the United States. The format will invite people to come to an understanding that each of us comes with a set of experiences that is shaped by our identity and how we are treated by society. Resources and tools will be offered to begin talking about race in an authentic way.
