Facing Race – New Conversations

The Longfellow Community Council is proud to partner with the Saint Paul Foundation to offer Facing Race, a series of participatory, discussion-based, events that offer residents the opportunity to learn about race and racism and the impact it has on our community. LCC believes talking about race and racism is a good first step toward creating a community where everyone feels safe, valued and respected.

Facing Race events are free and open to everyone but you must register. You can RSVP through facebook or send an email to joanna@longfellow.org. Ideally participants attend all three events, but you are welcome to attend as many as you like. I have attached a flyer! Please spread the word!

Light snacks will be provided.
