A Public Conversation About Racism
Traci Ellis, U-46 School Board member, local African American Leader, and recipient of Elgin’s 2018 Martin Luther King Humanitarian Award, has agreed to be part of a public conversation about the persistence of racism, both personal and institutional, and what we can do to fight it.
Fox Valley Citizens for Peace & Justice and Northern Illinois Jobs with Justice are hosting this meeting along with Traci Ellis.
Tuesday, January 23rd, 6:00 PM,

Please join us and help us work toward a better understanding of racism and some ideas about how to uproot it and dismantle it. Here is a link to an article that provoked this conversation. Here is a link to another great background article.
Also we recommend watching the Independent Lens Documentary about James Baldwin, entitled I am Not Your Negro.
All people who love justice are welcome to join us.
