Welcome! Thank you for joining us for the inaugural season of Community Conversations.
The purpose of Community Conversations serves to bridge the K-12 education communities and the greater civic, governmental, and law related education communities. For the inaugural season, each month will be rooted in its related awareness month. From here, moderators and panelists will share their compelling stories, research, and more. It is the personal + professional stories that provide pathways for all of us to see ourselves as part of these communities and/or informed members of our community in order to achieve greater civic and community possibilities.
While each month provides a theme, we know these issues transcend any given month. Rather, they serve as a call for greater inclusion, greater appreciation, and acknowledgment of the contributions and possibilities for an inclusive democracy.
Community Conversations is open to all and will provide space to open dialogue, share stories, and explore pathways for greater understanding of civic possibilities. Along the way, stories of resilience, joy, resistance, and persistence will help formulate our own civic and legal futures.
Thank you to the generosity of Warner Norcross + Judd. This legal firm has helped to underwrite this inaugural speaker series.
Thank you for supporting greater understanding through dialogue, diversity, and inclusion.
