New Canaan CARES: Learning and Leading in a Time of Social Justice: What Can We Do?
October 28 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
Recommended for families with children ages 13 and above
The U.S. is undergoing the largest and most sustained movement for social change and racial justice in our nearly 250-year history. No community is untouched by the injustices being protested or the imperative to confront them. How can we act now so that our children and their children will not need to be in the streets over the same persistent injustices 20, 30, and 40 years from now.
Speaker: Shamil Idriss
