What Can We Do to Make 2021 Better? An Intergenerational Dialogue on Racial Justice
Tuesday, December 08, 2020, 3:00 PM until 4:00 PM
Virtual - Webinar
It’s tempting to rip 2020 off the calendar right now. COVID-19 is raging through our nation leaving a path of destruction that disproportionately affects people of color and older adults. Social inequities pound at our sense and sensibility. Racial injustice, always present, explodes into view as we repeatedly witness incomprehensible violence that leaves a hole in our hearts and a yearning to do better. This virtual session will feature our own Bren Atchison, Encore Public Voices Fellow, and Brittany Bare, founder of My Life, My Stories, talking with two storytellers about how their personal experiences this year have shaped their intentions to fight racial injustice next year. You’ll also have a chance to brainstorm ways to fight systemic racism through intergenerational collaboration and grassroots efforts. Offered by Encore.org and My Life, My Stories.
