PEOPLE TO PEOPLE May Community Discussion on
“Table Talk 757 – Understanding the Impacts of Racial Segregation in Your Community: How We Got Here, What We Can Do”
May 20, Thursday at 6:30-8pm
The Table Talk 757 program creates opportunities for community members to engage in challenging conversations about diversity and inclusion. Each session focuses on a specific topic, and participants have the opportunity to share stories, perspectives, and ideas regarding issues facing the community.
This Table Talk session will once again feature Dr. Johnny Finn, Associate Professor of Geography at Christopher Newport University. His opening presentation will focus on introducing publicly available resources that anyone can use to better understand the history of redlining, the ongoing impacts of segregation, and contemporary interventions being taken by local leaders and policymakers all over the country to reduce the ongoing negative impacts of racial segregation. Following this presentation, small group discussions will focus on understanding the barriers that prevent change, and brainstorming ways the we can become more engaged to create change at a local level.
This Table Talk 757 session, presented by the Virginia Center for Inclusive Communities in partnership with PEOPLE to PEOPLE, is made possible thanks to Virginia Natural Gas. It will take place via Zoom from 6:30pm – 8:00pm on Thursday, May 20. Registration is required. A private link will be sent to all registered participants prior to the event.
