Tearing Down Walls


 

Wednesday, May 22nd at Roseville Lutheran Church
6:00 - 8:00pm
Dinner from La Tapatia and Childcare will be provided
Sign up below for this free event by 9 pm, Monday, May 20

Roseville Lutheran Church is excited to partner with the Leadership in Training (LIT) Program at Roseville Area Schools for this RLC community conversation facilitated by Meshe Ford and Tilso Tshane.

The idea behind this Intentional Social Interaction (nick named "IZI" by the youth leaders) is to start an intentional cross-cultural conversation about the walls that keep us divided as a community. The two walls that keep many communities separated are the racial and generational ones. We need to confront and talk about these two walls as a community to better bridge the gap between one another. The overall goal of our IZI is to connect with each other, have conversation, and eat some really good food as we do this.

Please sign up today for this free event so we can plan for food and child care needs:
