Dialogue to be held to address discrimination, racism in community
On Feb. 28 from 1 to 3 p.m. the City of Davis Human Relations Commission will hold the third-annual Breaking the Silence event that focuses on addressing issues of discrimination in the community. The dialogue will take place in the Community Chambers building on 23 Russell Blvd.
The event was started in 2012 to address issues of discrimination and racism in the Davis community. Participants are encouraged to share experiences with discrimination that will then be discussed in the hopes of increasing acceptance in the community. A panel of local officials and leaders will be present to address issues brought up by the community. The panel will share their efforts over the past year to reduce discrimination as well as answer questions and provide comments to issues brought up by participants.
