Wareham High School students attend Race Amity conference
Two seniors at Wareham High School recently spent the day attending a virtual conference on Race Amity titled “Reset to our Destiny - E Pluribus Unum.”
Brooke Chandler and Henry Jones attended the conference, hosted by the National Center for Race Amity, and watched a panel discussion including a variety of speakers: actor Penn Badgley, non-profit founder Debbie Ferruzzi, Native American rights advocate Adesbah Foguth, women’s rights advocate Courtney King-Tunis, NPR’s Doug Mitchell, and actor Masud Olufani.
Break-out sessions participated in by the students included HATE: What are you going to do?, Empowering Youth to Change the World, Race to Speak up Against Cyber Bullying, and Let's Discuss Materialism, Racism and Amity.
The Bourne-Wareham Race Amity Committee helped coordinate the event, and the Stone Family Grant provided scholarships for Jones and Chandler.
