Going Together: Conversations on the Way Forward

The Restorative Inquiry offers an unprecedented opportunity to address major issues affecting African Nova Scotian communities, and to work on solutions together. The RI team will be hosting the first of what we imagine will be many community conversations on June 10 at the East Preston Recreation Centre (24 Brooks Drive, East Preston) from 8:30 am-4 pm. Join us for a day of World Café-style discussions on topics including:

- The impacts of systemic racism
- Education and employment
- Supports for African Nova Scotian families
- Community leadership
- Mental health and well-being
- African Nova Scotians and the Justice system

This free-of-charge event is an opportunity to join the conversation and help shape the work of the Restorative Inquiry. To register, email info@restorativeinquiry.ca by June 1. Space is limited.
