Join the Conversation! (August 5)

YWCA St. Paul wants to hear from YOU! We’re hosting a series of Community Conversations, each focused on a specific topic reflecting the serious consequences of racism.

This virtual community conversation will focus on homelessness and housing, how systemic racism has contributed to current challenges, and some of the work going on in our community to address this challenge. Please join us to learn more about this important area of racial disparity in Minnesota, and engage with experts and other community members on how we can drive change.

Event Details

  • When: Wednesday, Aug. 5, 4:30-5:30 p.m.
  • Where: Zoom. Please register here: https://us02web.zoom.us/meeting/register/tZUkdeirrTIvHdSFpapHFs0hyqXt1pX6KUGf
