Safe Zone Conversation: Racism

Safe Zone Conversation: Racism
You are cordially invited to participate in the first 2022 member-wide Safe Zone Conversation about racism. A Safe Zone Conversation (SZC) is simply defined as civil dialogue amongst a group of people purposely engineered to discuss human topics that can be deemed sensitive, uncomfortable, or complex in nature.
