Let's Talk @ Lunch
THROUGH the issue of racism (instead of around it), we need to share a common language, and deepen our understanding by looking at events and institutions through a racial equity lens. One opportunity for such practice is our “Let’s Talk @ Lunch” program. Participants gather and YWCA Racial Justice Co-Directors Donique McIntosh or Eileen Hogan Heineman facilitate. Mark your calendars now for these "Let’s Talk @ Lunch" dates and locations:
YoFresh Yogurt Café, 635 Chicago Ave., Evanston
Curt's Cafe, 2922 Central St., Evanston
YWCA Evanston/North Shore, 1215 Church St., Evanston
3rd Thursday of the month, 12:00-1:00 pm (feel free to bring your lunch)
Nov. 19, Dec. 17, Jan. 2
Additional locations coming in the Fall - watch this space for updates!
