In October, 2016 Charlotte received a wake-up call: As demonstrators took to the streets to call attention to racial injustice, many people awakened to the reality that our community is not of one mind about who we ought to be as a city. The officer-involved shooting of Keith Lamont Scott prompted difficult conversations in our homes, workplaces and houses of worship.

In response, Covenant Presbyterian Church, CN Jenkins Presbyterian Church and the Women’s Inter-Cultural Exchange will host a series of multi-cultural community dialogues at Covenant intended to elevate the voices of diverse Charlotteans. Together, we will seek a deeper understanding of implicit bias and systemic racism in our city and the broader culture. Our goal is to build trust and expand opportunity regardless of race, income and status.

Below are the speakers and panelists for each of the 5 sessions of WIE's Dialogue Series: "Charlotte's Wake-Up Call".  You can read more about each person by clicking on their photo.
