TOMODACHI Critical Conversations Series NEW Series for TOMODACHI Alumni — Facilitated by USJC U40s — Inspired by #BlackLivesMatter
As the #BlackLivesMatter movement became global, even making its way to Japan, we see the strong need and beautiful opportunity to have these important discussions now.
Through the Critical Conversation Series, we aim to bring together youth in Japan and the United States to create peer-to-peer learning opportunities by bringing thoughtful and inspirational speakers, creating a safe space to share experiences and perspectives, and to continue to be able to educate ourselves and have these important discussions.
This is a three-part series, we’re starting this month (July 2020).We have not confirmed the other dates yet but we will post the information as the details are firmed up. Join the conversation to share, listen, and learn together.
