YWCA Evanston/North Shore

Community Conversations on Racial Equity

The YWCA's Community Conversations on Racial Equity are helping participants develop the skills and common vocabulary necessary to engage in honest conversations, leading to an understanding of how systemic racism affects the day-to-day life of all who live and work in Evanston. Group members envision what racial equity could look like in our city and identify specific roles individuals can take to move us toward that reality.

Join us for our upcoming Conversations!

Participants may register for one or multiple evenings of the series, which covers the following topics:

  • Tuesday, April 29, 6:30-8:30 pm: Communicating Across Differences
  • Thursday, May 1, 6:30-8:30 pm: Race & Racism: The Lived Experience
  • Tuesday, May 6, 6:30-8:30 pm: Exploring Privilege and Internalized Racism
  • Thursday, May 8, 6:30-8:30 pm:  Racial Equity: What Does It Look Like and How Do We Get There?
