Connect in Place: Can we get along?

December 1, 2020 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm

Join facilitator Chisao Hata in examining our personal experiences of connection and community on Tuesday, December 1 from 5-6:30 pm. In 1992, in the midst of riots sparked by the acquittal of police officers who brutally beat him, Rodney King asked, “Can we get along?” This iconic American question still resonates today. What is it that drives this question, and why can it be so difficult to answer? What holds us back from connecting with each other? How do our personal experiences contribute to—and have the potential to break down—these barriers? Join facilitator Chisao Hata as she holds space to examine our individual and collective questions on race, perspectives, and cultural values around what brings us together and what separates us.
