Committee For Racial Justice will have its next workshop on May 2 at 6:30 p.m. on zoom. It is entitled A TIME OF CIVIL UNREST: WHERE DO WE GO FROM HERE? and will have several resource people to help us in small groups as we deal with moving toward change after this year of civil unrest in the wake of George Floyd’s murder. The Chauvin trial and all the protests over this past year are helping to move us toward a time of reckoning on race in a way that this country has not experienced before. The conviction of one man will not make all the difference. We will still experience civil unrest because civil rights injustices are still all around us, but the Chauvin trial has contributed to a sea change in awareness in our country of how much has to be changed. CRJ wants to help galvanize the resistance to injustice and racism that has been brought to light.

There will be three speakers who will also be resources for small group discussion: Robert J. Howard III is a dynamic inspirational speaker, restorative justice trainer & practitioner, group facilitator, and conflict mediator. Dr. Roslyn Satchel is a scholar-activist who researches and teaches about communication, ethics, and law. George Brown has been an attorney for over three decades. He retired from active law practice a few years ago.
