Lake Crystal is hosting a community conversation on race next week.

It’s Time to Talk: Forums on Race is a YWCA trademarked program that uses trained facilitators to lead small table discussions on race. Participants exchange ideas during the conversation in a nonthreatening environment.

Organizers say it’s an opportunity to build community connections, grow professional development skills, and learn new ways to think about race.

The forum will be held at the Zion Lutheran Church on March 8th from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. Registration is required, and those interested in attending should call the Lake Crystal Wellcome Memorial Community Education Office.
