Race to be Human

February 27 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm

Independence House and Sharing Kindness are pleased to present RACE to be Human, a documentary about racism and its impact on the mental health of children and adults.

Film showing followed by 30-minute panel discussion and Q&A

About the film:
This film addresses the apprehension and confusion so many of us feel when it comes to talking about race and racism. It also shares how we can participate and build empathy through conversations at home, work, and school. RACE to Be Human includes strategies and tips to check ourselves and others while inspiring self-reflection so that as individuals we are more aware, and as communities, we can move forward more equitably.

Lysetta Hurge-Putnam, Executive Director of Independence House will be facilitating the panel discussion.
