Date & Time:

Location:

Description: 

How do our perceptions impact the way we treat others and the way we show up in any given situation? From racial profiling to the way we respond to victims of gender-based violence, preceptions left unchecked can contribute to stereotypes, acts of violence, & victim-blaming.

Join Wanda Johnson, Executive Director of the Oscar Grant Foundation, and Cynthia Peterson, Executive Director of Community Violence Solutions, in this conversation about the intersectional dynamics of perceptions as they relate to our gender, racial, and intersectional identities, and ways that we can challenge ourselves and our communities to be allies to each other.
