Join Wayne State University and community leaders for a series of candid conversations on race in America.

In response to the George Floyd in America: Questioning the Role of the Police panel on July 30, the University will host a virtual talkback session with facilitated breakout rooms on Zoom to discuss the real sources of public safety and how public resources should be reallocated in the future to better meet community needs.

The talkback session is designed to allow participants to ask questions and engage in smaller group dialogue. Following the breakouts, distinguished community leaders will continue the larger group conversation based on feedback from the smaller groups.

To ensure a meaningful experience, registration will be capped to accommodate smaller group discussions. Please register early to secure your spot and receive the link to participate.
