Make meaningful connections, share diverse perspectives, move towards positively impacting our community, and identify actions to end segregation in various forms through this roundtable.
In partnership with the On the Table CLT citywide initiative, Divinity Affairs and Packard Place are teaming up to provide a forum for the community to have a voice and represent your family, your neighborhood, or whatever perspective you'd like to share. On this day, you'll learn about the legacy of segregation in Charlotte. You are invited to join us, have candid dialogue, make new friends, widen your lens and collaborate on actions we can take to improve our community, one step at a time.
