Let's Talk about Race Logo

Join Us - Registration Now Open

On behalf of the Arlington Partnership for Children, Youth & Families, I invite you to join us in a five-part intergenerational Community Conversation on race and racism called “Let’s Talk about Race.”   This important series, which is open to adults and high school youth, will consist of facilitated dialogue in large and small groups by way of a thoughtfully designed curriculum focused on examining race and racism through a review of:  federal housing policies and the creation of the suburbs, race as a social construct, socialization to race, racial microagressions, cultural appropriation, political movements for change, and minority achievement and achievement gaps.

The Partnership is pleased to be working with the organizers of Challenging Racism Through Stories and Conversations.  We also are thankful of the support received from the Arlington Department of Human Services, Arlington Public Schools, and the Arlington Juvenile & Domestic Relations Court Services Unit. 

We encourage you register early for the Community Conversations:  Let’s Talk About Race because space is limited.  We look forward to seeing you on October 26, November 16, January 11, February 15, and March 29!
