Next YWCA Community Conversations on Race series starts July 10

This in from the YWCA Evanston/North Shore...

Summer is here, many of your schedules are different, and the YWCA Evanston/North Shore wants to make it easier for you to be part of our ongoing anti-racism work.  We will hold our four-part conversation series over two weeks, to help you work around vacation times.

The next Community Conversations on Race series starts Tuesday, July 10.  The series will meet four times over two weeks, on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6:30-8:30pm here at the YWCA, at Ridge and Church.

Sessions will be July 10, 12, 17, 19.   Pre-registration is required either online at (click on "What We Do" and you'll see the Community Conversations on Race listed there) or by calling Eileen Heineman at
847-864-8445 ext. 158.   Sign up today!

And of course, big thanks to those who participated in, or volunteered for the Race Against Hate. What an awesome event, and a great way to remind each other that it is communities standing together that effect change.  Hope you'll keep it going by engaging in dialogue that works to identify and dismantle racism in all forms.
