More on RTOR:
Real Talk on Race meets the 1st & 3rd Thursdays of each month. RTOR is open to all and hopes to help build meaningful conversations and connections in our community.
RTOR has moved to a hybrid in-person/Zoom format for their bi-monthly discussions. Please register below or email us at email@example.com to get a link to the meetings.
By the process of having meaningful conversations, we continue to learn what it means to see each other as human beings, which is necessary if we are to find permanent solutions to the injustices related to "race" and to gain insights that will help us to better understand and respond to situations related to "race" that we may encounter in our everyday lives.
