How many times have we heard in the past several years about the need to have a productive conversation about racism and the effects on our communities? It’s a national challenge that is entwined with poverty, class, and privilege. Truly, if we cannot talk about it, how can we fix it?
In the spirit and tradition of Jeannette Rankin’s (the woman) social justice advocacy, Jeannette Rankin Women’s Scholarship Fund is sponsoring a unique program, It’s Time to Talk: Forums on Race. We are dedicated to give back to the community that supports us. The program is scheduled to take place in March 2020 in Athens, GA. Our Fourth Annual It’s Time to Talk forum offers each and every person who attends the opportunity to participate in a thoughtful dialogue on racism, facilitated by trained Volunteer Racial Justice Facilitators.
It’s Time to Talk: Forums on Race has been successfully presented in multiple cities across the country. Businesses, nonprofit organizations, law enforcement, community groups and schools have found participating in It's Time to Talk to be thought-provoking and motivating. You will leave inspired to personally take action to improve race relations at work, in the community, and with family and friends. Each group that attends It’s Time to Talk will have the opportunity to engage in an additional follow up dialogue, facilitated by one of our Racial Justice Facilitators.
It’s Time to Talk – and we want you at the table!
