What is Race Relations Dialogue?
Race Relations Dialogue (RRD) is just a group of diverse people – friends and neighbors from all walks of life and all ethnic and faith groups – who gather monthly to discuss and improve race relations in their area. RRD creates opportunities for open, cordial and courageous conversation for the purposes of reducing or eliminating from American society bias, discrimination, intimidating behavior and hostility towards minorities and fostering understanding and appreciation of all people.
RRD meets to study issues of race and to nurture bonds of interracial friendship and cooperation. Programs include appropriate internet videos and speakers from the community and are aimed at awareness and consciousness raising. Through small and large group discussion participants explore together how to understand and communicate on the subjects of race and race relations.
RRD is guided by a diverse volunteer Board elected by the members.
RRD does not practice or tolerate discrimination on the basis of sex, age, race, color, national origin, religion, or disability.
RRD has no membership requirements and no dues. All are welcome!
