Courageous Conversations: Standing in Another’s Shoes

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

Courageous Conversations

We hear a lot that we are divided. But might we be disconnected? How do we bear witness to stories and lived experiences different than our own? How do we receive someone else’s experience with empathy? Can our stories help build bridges across borders and separations? Join us for our monthly (virtual!) edition of Courageous Conversations with special guests Todd Deatherage of Telos Group (Virginia); Tonika Johnson of the Folded Map Project (Chicago); and Dr. Cynthia Armendariz-Maxwell of Sunny Hill Elementary School (Carpentersville). Hosted by Rev. Dr. Zina Jacque and Jessica Swoyer Green. Presented by Urban Consulate with Barrington’s White House.

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