Wareham residents are invited to attend a virtual antiracist event on Tuesday, Nov. 17th, hosted by The Tritown and Beyond Community Read Committee. The event will include a live, virtual Q & A with local leaders to discuss antiracism and promoting justice. The goal of this event is to learn action steps people can take to promote justice in the community.

The event will be held via Zoom from 7 pm to 8:30 pm. Speakers include: Marlene Pollock, retired professor of History at Bristol Community College and Co-founder of The Coalition for Social Justice, Dr. Jannell Pearson-Campbell, Assistant Superintendent of Schools for the ORR School District, and Gail Fortes, Executive Director of the YWCA of Southeastern Massachusetts.

Rochester and Nashville resident and singer-songwriter Rebecca Correia will be singing original songs inspired by recent events.

Attendees are asked to register in advance for this event.

Wareham residents are also invited to join the Tritown and Beyond Community Read by finding the group on Facebook. The goal of the read is to continue learning about ways that racism plays out in society at large and on the south coast. The first read featured How to be an Anti-Racist by Ibram X. Kendi and Stamped: Racism, Antiracism, and You by Kendi and Jason Reynolds. The next Community Read book will be announced at the meeting.
