10/28: Voices of Black Youth

UPDATE: 

There was a problem with the link that was sent out earlier for the registration for the
Oct 28th 6 pm Amplifying the Voices of Black Youth & Their Parents in the La Crosse Area.  
If you did not get an email from Arlette Rodriguez-Miller, Executive Director (director of the Greater La Crosse Area Diversity Council) confirming your registration, your registration is probably not valid.  You may need to register AGAIN using the link below.
Sorry for the confusion.   

 

 

Join us in this pressing educational program unveiling the perspectives of black youth and their parents in the La Crosse area. 


The recent murders of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, and Breonna Taylor brought forth national protests against long-standing police brutality and systemic racism that permeates our country. 

In the La Crosse area, multiple protests have been organized by local Black youth who shared their perspectives of experiencing racism, bullying, and stereotyping in our community from a very young age.

This event will facilitate discussion and understanding on a film intended to amplify the voices of the La Crosse area black youth and their parents, to engage our community in necessary conversations about bias, racism, and privilege. 

We challenge our community to change the environment, policies and practices that disproportionately impact black youth and their families.  

This educational event will be Part I.  Part II details are yet to be determined. Participants will be informed as the date is confirmed. 

Click on the link below to register at no cost.

We look forward to having you join at this virtual event. 
 
Sincerely,
 
Arlette Rodriguez-Miller
Executive Director
Greater La Crosse Area Diversity Council
