Conversation. Resilience. Regeneration.
Healing begins when the pain from discrimination, hate and violence is given our full attention.
Join us for a conversation to share the impact of discrimination, hate, and violence in communities across our state - from Dietrich to Boise to Bonners Ferry. Be part of solutions to build resilience and create communities where everyone is valued, safe, and able to thrive; where we choose all of us.
Tuesday, April 25 from 7-9 p.m.. at the Linen Building, 1402 West Grove, Boise
Senator Cherie Buckner-Webb and Representative Melissa Wintrow will facilitate this regional conversation.
Stories and possible solutions will be shared with the governmental agencies and advocacy organizations working together to transform harm and conflict into solutions.
The community meeting is concerning the violent assault in Dietrich, Idaho of a young black student with disabilities. The two goals of this meeting are to:
- Provide the disability community and communities of color a chance to share how the incident and court case has impacted them or their family.
- Develop meaningful solutions to create safer schools and a more just criminal justice system.
