Candid conversations about race, hate speech, and discrimination are meant to inspire courageous dialogue and lead to direct action in an equitable and healing space. We wish to provide an opportunity for citizens to express love and provide help against hate through engaging with a complex variety of topics in an effort to inspire thoughtful leadership on current social justice issues.” Cani Aden, Human Rights Commission Chair.
