Join us on Thursday, April 22, May 20, & June 10 from 6-7 PM ET for our Racial Justice Community Chat Series! In this series of community chats, Special Guest Artists will lead discussions based on their specific area of expertise and experience in Racial Justice and Equity work. They will also share tools so participants can continue or begin engaging in this necessary work in their personal lives and communities.
