Events for Equity, Diversity & Inclusion

Learn & Laugh

Connection: the first step to understanding.

To combat racism, we must get to know each other. Events help us do that. They allow us to share perspectives, cultures and traditions. Plus, they’re fun! You can dance, sing, watch movies, you name it – while connecting with community members.
