Guests will share experiences, perspectives, journeys, and challenges as they navigate society where racism has touched their lives and what we can all do to make positive changes in our world. Through Zoom, you are invited to listen to the conversation and engage with others through the chat function, then pose questions for Justice David and Angka to ask the guest(s). While some insights from the guests will be shared after the program, the conversations are closed to only those who have registered, and they will not be recorded. This allows guests and attendees to be open and vulnerable.
