Come share your thoughts and enjoy a free dinner this Tuesday, February 19th at the Washtenaw County Public Health Department in Room 1120 (map). This community conversation is a free facilitated discussion that will focus on the relationship between race and the body. It is open to the public.

This event is part of the Understanding Race Project and co-sponsored by the Washtenaw County Public Health Department and the U-M National Center for Institutional Diversity.  The goal of Community Conversations is to  provide a safe place to talk about race with friends, neighbors, and new acquaintances. Our goal is to bring members of the community together to exchange information, share experiences, honestly express perspectives, clarify viewpoints, build community, and provide a space for racial healing and creation of equality.Please RSVP to sablanks@umich.edu.
