ERacism: Action Toward Positive Change
Existing disparities are made more apparent during COVID 19 and the pandemic of systemic racism threatens our community’s ability to enhance diversity, equity, and inclusion.
Date: October 1
Time: 6:30-8:00 P.M.
Tune in and participate at ProsperSpringfield.org or the Prosper Springfield and City of SGF Facebook pages. Tough Talks will also be simulcast on the City’s cable channels, Mediacom channel 15.1 and 80 and AT&T Uverse channel 9.

Springfield is a great place to live, but we can’t reach our full potential unless we understand diverse points of view. “Tough Talks” is an important first step to build relationships, engage in dialog and take action to end racism and build a more inclusive community.
