After the Protests, What Now?
June 11, 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm CDT
Payment: This gathering is pay-what-you-feel, empowering you to pay what you feel this experience is worth to you and within your means to support.
Josh and I met in October 2019 and we couldn’t come from more different backgrounds. He is a 28 year old Black man and I’m a 72 year old white woman. We have developed a relationship based on our authentic selves and want to expand that to include all of you. Please join us, bringing your full selves and ideas. In collaboration, with our collective will and wisdom we are going to eradicate the racist culture that now exists. There is a sense of urgency which we need to harness – to rebuild and heal together.
Please RSVP above. You’ll receive a ticket with the Zoom link needed to access this gathering via email.
