On October 17, 2017, the Racial Justice Department of YWCA Minneapolis will host the 15th annual It’s Time to Talk: Forums on Race™ featuring Sun Yung Shin, editor of A Good Time for the Truth: Race in Minnesota, a provocative book where sixteen of Minnesota’s best writers provide a range of perspectives on what it is like to live as a person of color in Minnesota.

Minnesota communities struggle with some of the nation’s worst racial disparities. Shin will facilitate and guide a panel discussion regarding current concerns in our community with seven contributors from the book, including:

·         Venessa Fuentes

·         Shannon Gibney

·         Carolyn Holbrook

·         Robert Farid Karimi

·         Sherry Quan Lee

·         David Mura

·         Rodrigo Sanchez-Chavarria

·         Kao Kalia Yang

Thanks to your investment, diverse leaders from all sectors will join you to move Minnesota forward through honest conversation and powerful action.

The conversation continues long after It’s Time to Talk. Following the program, YWCA will customize and connect this work to your organization through workshops and dialogues. This is an exceptional way to maximize the benefits of your participation.

Contact us at 612-215-4161 or IT2T@ywcampls.org with any questions. For sponsorships greater than $10,000, contact Chau Espenson at cespenson@ywcampls.org.
