Grand Traverse Humanists will welcome Marshall Collins and Courtney Wiggins, co-founders of the Northern Michigan Community Based Non-Profit Organization E3, along with other members. The mission of the organization is to be an anti-racism taskforce to help make our community an area that celebrates and welcome diversity and shares in equality for all residents and visitors. The presenters will address actions taken to meet the goals of E3 (Educate, Engage and Elevate):
~Engaging Local Law Enforcement, Businesses and Government Agencies to think more progressively to create a welcoming environment for all
~Educating both BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) members and white members so that they can better connect within the larger community
~Provide healing for members of the BIPOC community
~Provide residents with tools to better understand racial justice to elevate all members of the community
The presentation will be followed by a Q and A.
