This Month: Black Optimism with Greg Moore!
What is our lived experience of racism? How does it affect our mental health? How much energy do we lose just worrying about our family’s safety? How does racism get inside of our heads? How do we get it out? What can we do to stay optimistic and focused on progress? How do we make sure that all voices are included in the conversation? What are some positive actions that we can take to redistribute resources and advance our community?
This month, join author, sports writer, and award-winning opinion journalist for the Arizona Republic Greg Moore for a conversation on racism, mental health, and staying optimistic at Get Lit, Thursday, February 4, 2021 from 7:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. Phoenix MST on Zoom.
