Club of Honest Citizens presents: Created Equal
RSVP
past event | January 11 2017 @ 6 PM | In partnership with Leon County
Race + founding ideals + our hometown

We’ll be continuing the frank community conversation about how we are doing in our hometown on issues of race and racial equality. In the wake of tragic events in communities of color and the repercussions of the disturbingly polarizing 2016 election, we can’t quietly wish this were someone else’s problem. So we’re going to continue to talk about how we can face it, own it, and change it. Learn more and RSVP here. (The program is facilitatd by Chuck Hobbs.)

We’re going to keep asking how we live into the long-promised vision of our founders that “all men are created equal” – right here in our hometown. It’s a big promise our founders made, and we’re going to have to get a little uncomfortable if we’re going to rise to it. We say we’re up to the challenge. (Dinner – because this will probably make us hungry – is on us.) This project is a partnership with Leon County Government. Learn more about the our award-winning series in partnership with Leon County, The Club of Honest Citizens.
