Race

Racism and gaps among racial and ethnic groups affect education, housing, health care, the justice system and job opportunities. This conversation is an opportunity to explore our experience of race and equity. Where are we and what do we aspire to for ourselves and our community? Also see the conversation guides and resources specifically designed for schools, libraries, and faith communities.
