We are excited to announce that our first RER Breakfast of the new school year will be held on Thursday, October 27. Please join us at YWCA Boulder County from 9:30 - 10:30 am for a special guest speaker: Rev. Pedro Silva II, Associate Minister at First Congregational Church of Boulder!
Rev. Silva, who spent eight years in the U.S. Air Force as a satellite-communications technician and intelligence analyst and is a former non-profit sector employee, will speak about the importance of engaging in community conversations around race and racism. We will discuss the importance of taking conversational risks in an effort to encourage people toward crossing social borders and moving into authentic dialogue. An important part of this is opening up to each other honestly about our deepest concerns, instead of relying on assumptions, prejudices, biases, and profiling in order to protect ourselves.
We encourage you to invite friends, family, and neighbors!
For more information or to RSVP for the breakfast, contact Lena at
303.443.0419 x104 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
We hope to see you all there!
