Join us February 9 for an evening of thought-provoking discussion.
How can our education system foster a sense of racial and social justice in our schools and throughout our communities?
Lexington’s demographics are rapidly changing, which brings challenges to the whole community. Are we effectively honoring and celebrating this diversity? How do we tell a more complete story of who Lexington is and has been in our school curriculum? What kind of projects or programs can foster collaboration, respect, and appreciation for the contributions of Lexingtonians of all backgrounds?
This is the first in a series of conversations co-sponsored by the Lexington Lyceum Advocates and LexObserver. These community conversations will take place in an interactive format: brief remarks by experts in the field, followed by a moderator-led Q&A discussion with audience members, and culminating in break-out sessions in small groups, led by the panelists.Come to talk, share, question, listen, and learn!
February 9, 7:00-8:45 p.m.
