The Como Community Council’s Sunday Series continues this month with an emphasis on topics being explored by the council’s Anti-Racism Work Group.

  • Sunday Oct. 25, 1-2:30 p.m.: “Our Justice System and Race Equity.” The presenter is Richard McLemore II, who is a Circle Keeper with Saint Paul’s “ETHOS” diversion program, was director of Ujamaa Place (a culturally-specific organization focused on young black men who have been involved with the criminal justice system), and is a board member for We Are All Criminals and the Dispute Resolution Center. Among other restorative justice activities, he also leads workshops on mental and emotional healing for practitioners at state and federal prisons, juvenile facilities, and county jails across the nation. And that's not the beginning of the story.

Sunday Series presentations are free and open to all; they will be online. To take part, register in advance. We’ll send you access information shortly before the presentation.
