Talk On Race

YWCA Lower Cape Fear Presents “Talk On Race”

Talk On Race is an effort to engage with the community in conversation as we race towards an equitable and just society. Each month we focus on a sector of society, and pull in experts and community leaders to discuss disparities, implicit and explicit bias, how racism shows up in their work, and their hope for our community and the future.
