Bridge the Divide, Ozaukee County and UW-Madison University Extension are excited to announce a partnership with our local libraries with the goal of turning the page on long-standing issues on race and social justice in our communities.
Ozaukee County Talks About Race has a simple goal of continuing the community conversation about the impact of race in our relationships and interactions today, while deepening the understanding of how our shared past history has shaped the communities where we live. The discussions that Ozaukee County Talks About Race initiate will open lines of communication among our friends and neighbors.
Coinciding with the celebration of Dr. Martin Luther King Day and Black History Month, Ozaukee County Talks About Race will kickoff with a Community Conversation Event on January 11th at 6:00pm held via Zoom. The event, hosted by Extension Ozaukee and Bridge the Divide, will welcome those interested in learning about the impact of race in Ozaukee County and introduce the planned book discussions at local libraries.
Whether actively engaging in diversity work in the community, interested in how to begin the conversation at work or home or if attending a conversation on race issues creates feelings of uncertainty, the event is an opportunity for all.
