Community Conversations: Elevating Suppressed Voices

Community Conversations: Racism and Reforms

  • Date: 07/21/2020 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM  
  • Location: Remote Participation

Elevating Suppressed Voices will be a conversation in which strictly POC (people of color) community members will be heard, but the session is open for all to attend. Far too often community members of color are spoken for or on behalf of. This session is meant to highlight the voices of People of Color that go unheard or are drowned out by the loudest and most vocal voices. Perspectives and experiences will be shared, concerns can be voiced and visions of change will be explored. We will be talking with long time and new residents, youth including students who are a part of the METCO program and individuals who work in town. The series is co-sponsored by the Arlington Human Rights Commission.

As the conversations continue to develop, additional information will be provided. At this time if you wish to submit a question or topic please fill out this form.

Anyone needing accessibility information or other assistance in order to attend this meeting should contact Jillian Harvey, jharvey@town.arlington.ma.us. This meeting is open to all interested individuals.

We Want to Hear From You

This is a call to all community members of color who would like their voices to be heard. The third conversation of the series is meant to highlight the voices of People of Color that go unheard or are drowned out by the loudest and most vocal voices. If you reside, attend school, work or own a business in town, this is the opportunity to have your voice highlighted.
Perspectives and experiences will be shared, concerns can be voiced and visions of change will be explored. Please submit a 1-2 minute video recording here of yourself with what you would like to share. If recording on your phone, please do it horizontally, and in your intro please include your name and role as community member. If you wish to remain anonymous but would still like to share, please email your story, concerns or experiences to ahrcevents@gmail.com
 
If you have other questions or concerns please contact Jillian Harvey, DEI Coordinator jharvey@town.arlington.ma.us
