Courageous Conversations: Healing Our Communities

December 9, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Courageous Conversations

This has been a time of great change, trauma and truth-telling, illuminating fractures in our civic life that require healing and repair. How do we practice that in community? Join us for our monthly (virtual!) edition of Courageous Conversations with special guest speaker Michael O’Bryan, founder and CEO of Humanature. O’Bryan is a practitioner and researcher in the fields of community development, organizational culture, and human wellbeing, with more than a decade working directly with resilient yet underserved populations, including veterans, adults in recovery, returning citizens, and families experiencing homelessness. Humanature develops and shares tools to address our most intractable challenges where inadequate soft/behavioral skills meet issues of stress, social cognitive bias, racial equity and inclusion. We welcome Michael from his home in Philadelphia, followed by breakout dialogue. Hosted by Rev. Dr. Zina Jacque and Jessica Swoyer Green. Presented by Urban Consulate with Barrington’s White House.

 

Tickets:

  • Open to the public, ages 15+
  • Advance registration required to receive Zoom link
  • $15 per person
