The Austin Renaissance Council is pleased to invite you to the Symposium on Racial Reconciliation, a community event aligned with Austin’s Quality of Life Plan. The Symposium will bring together individual speakers, artists, community organizations, and panel discussions with an online audience to address our hidden history, racial reconciliation, and issues of justice. The Symposium will also highlight current initiatives, programs, and projects in Austin that create ongoing resources and opportunities for our community.
See Committee Chair Vanessa Stokes speak with Fox 32 Chicago’s Terrence Lee about the Symposium and being a voice for change.
The Symposium on Racial Reconciliation will be held on Thursday, November 5, 2020, beginning at 10:00 am and expected to run approximately four and a half hours. The event will be entirely live-streamed from the Kehrein Center for the Arts in Austin via YouTube. Please Register Here to receive links to the Symposium live-stream on November 5.
You will experience a variety of presentations and panel discussions and be able to submit questions and comments online as the Symposium contends not only with racial reconciliation and community development, but how to create actions that are sustainable, measurable and that can make a long-lasting impact in the community. We see action as a catalyst for transformation!
