Descendants Respond – Actions Speak Louder!

May 25 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Descendants Respond – Actions Speak Louder! – May 25, 2021, 10am – 11am CDT

May 25th marks one year since the death of George Floyd, an unarmed Black man murdered by a white Minneapolis Police Officer. Mr. Floyd’s death was both the start of a movement and the continuation of a hundreds-of-years-old legacy of racism in the United States.

Against this long legacy of systemic racism, progress will require that we continue to acknowledge the truth of our history, take marked action toward justice, and evaluate our work toward tangible change that is experienced at both a personal and communal level.

On May 25, 2021, join Social Venture Partners Dallas and The Descendants Truth & Reconciliation Foundation for a gathering that will seek an honest confrontation with reality, both past and current, and explore a community model for transformation and racial healing. The event will shine light on areas of accountability and explore the lessons of a community pursuing reconciliation.
