Community Now

June 4 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

What is happening ? Why are communities burning ?

Its 2020, we are in the middle of a global pandemic, 40 million Americans are out of work and we’ve watched the murder of George Floyd on our televisions, phones and computers.  We need to talk about what is happening when there are protests against police violence in all 50 states and around the world. How do we understand this point in time?  What are the macro level messages that white Americans need to hear?

Tanay Lynn Harris

Todd Mealy
