We are a people with the capacity for curiosity, for compassion, for community, and for conversation. As we all take stock of the state of racial inequities in our nation, connect with us live for an important panel Discussion: How Did We Get Here? Understanding Racial Inequities.
It’s our hope that the difficulties now prominently featured in our newsfeeds and our public spaces present an opportunity for deeper discussion and hope for justice and peace. Whether you’ve been long studying the effects of racism in America, or have a slew of urgent questions, this panel discussion is for you. We hope to raise awareness and work together with these community figures to be a city in conversation so that we can become a community who is not afraid to address racism and take action to know better so we can do better. Our panelists include Andre Ebron, Founder of Ebron Associates and a mentor and motivational speaker; Cisco Ortiz, Trine University’s Dean of Students; Dr. Timothy Hallman; Director of Christian Emphasis for the Greater Fort Wayne YMCA; and Rev. Nikki Shaw, Pastor of First Congregational United Church of Christ, Angola.
Please connect with us on June 8th at 6:30 pm through Facebook Live on the First Congregational UCC Angola

There will be a Q&A period on Facebook after of the panel discussion. We welcome your voice!
