YWCA Evanston/North Shore

Let's Talk @ Lunch

The YWCA is committed to eliminating racism. As we learn to talk THROUGH the issue of racism (instead of around it), we need to share a common language, and practice our conversation skills by looking at events and institutions through a racial equity lens. One opportunity for such practice is our “Let’s Talk @ Lunch” program. Participants bring their lunch, the YWCA Evanston/North Shore provides the beverage, facilitator and a topic, article or video clip as the catalyst for honest conversation. We gather at noon; conversation runs from 12:10 to 1:00 pm. Mark your calendars now for the following "Let’s Talk @ Lunch" dates and locations:
