|Spring Institute 2012|
|Workshop:||What Stands Between Us|
|Presented by:||Patrick Johnson|
|Time:||Thursday, August 18 12:30 pm|
|Max number of participants:||40|
This session will explore the issue of race relations in America and our local community. The presenter will create an atmosphere that allows the participants to share their views, concerns, perspectives, questions and solutions. America is currently in a state where it is being asked to review and take a closer look at the relationship between Law Enforcement and the communities they serve - particularly Black communities. As important as that is, let's also examine what it means to be Black in America, what it means to be White, Latino, Asian and any other racial identity in this country. Let's do it for the purpose of getting an honest look and assessment of what stands between us and what needs to occur for a better appreciation for one another.
