The Conversation Project – Will You Join In The Conversation?

The Conversation Project

In the hopes of starting a positive healing process, after the lost lives of young people for what appears to be no reason other than the color of their skin, we came together – to talk. OPENLY, HONESTLY, CANDIDLY. Not to point fingers, not to incite, but to try to delve into the rawness of the truth so as to simply begin to heal and begin to work together towards solutions and STEPS FORWARD instead of feeling sucked into the abyss that evil forces are trying to keep our country in.
