We are delighted that Jesse Hagopian will lead our conversation on racial justice and education this spring. Conversations on Race has been part of our organization’s mission for over 20 years. We believe that when we talk about race, we have the opportunity to increase understanding, build relationships across racial and cultural divides, and thus create a stronger community. Our annual event is a community-wide conversation on integration, inclusion, and race-related issues of concern to our community and our nation.
