Post Event Action Steps: Anti-Racism, Belonging and Community

On August 20, 2020, 868 people registered to participate in a virtual convening about Anti-Racism, Belonging and Community coordinated by Imagine Fox Cities. What actions can you take next?

Check out our Conversations on Race: Community Conversation Host Guides. The goals of these conversations are to listen and share personal stories without judgement in order to create a foundation upon which to take action together to eliminate racism.

Host a conversation on race using the conversation guides. Do you want to help with leading a conversation? Request a facilitator here.

Participate in and invite people you know to join you in upcoming Community Conversations about race hosted by the Appleton Public Library and United Way Fox Cities Emerging Leaders.

Share the availability of these opportunities with people you know: family, friends, coworkers, community and business leaders, faith community. Follow us on Facebook!
