Conversations on racial healing

Conversations on Racial Healing is a series of nine meetings to learn about and to discuss racism and racial bias. The series is designed to provide information on several topics related to race relations and to offer a safe place to voluntarily share your experiences regarding racism.

The goals are:

  • to educate the mind with new facts and research about types of racism
  • to examine life experiences and share from your heart
  • to build relationships with other groups so we can support each other’s efforts to accept others without prejudice

The City of Roseville is supportive of the effort but is not involved in determining participation or guiding the discussion. This effort is in alignment with the City Council’s direction and addition to the strategic plan under the “Safe and Healthy Community” goal to strengthen inclusiveness and anti-racism efforts in partnership with the community.

Participation availability is limited.
