In the summer of 2020, amid great racial conflict following Breonna Taylor’s killing, Black leaders in Louisville created “A Path Forward,” an extensive, forward-looking document for bringing racial equity to Louisville. The document examined multiple components of racial injustice and recommended actions to alleviate them. This six-week experience will help you engage more deeply – in learning and in action – with racial equity issues facing Louisville and our nation.
More than ever, the world needs citizens who are prepared to engage with the complex social challenges that impact our communities and advocate for those who are vulnerable to exploitation. This group offers women a safe, supportive space to learn about social justice issues and become empowered to work for a just and equitable society, where all families and communities can thrive.
Do you wish you felt more skillful when talking about racial justice? Do you either avoid the difficult conversations or get into them, only to find yourself frustrated, dismayed, tongue-tied, or uncertain? How do we help create space so that both parties have a chance to speak honestly and be heard? How do we move from “us” and “them” to a greater sense of shared vision? How do we express ourselves in a way that is authentic, clear, and grounded?
