Matthew Freeman passes along this opportunity:

Come join us for Hope in the Cities’ series of strategic dialogues on metropolitan Richmond issues. Highly trained facilitators will lead a dialogue for 25 participants on January 16th & 17th at Richmond Hill.

The dialogues will address two critical questions:

  • How can the region reconcile longstanding historical and cultural differences that undermine trust, breed caution and prevent needed initiatives?
  • How can we build relationships of trust across divides of race, class, and jurisdiction in order to benefit of our entire region?

The curriculum is based on both an academic and experiential learning model. The focus is on understanding historical events that have led to present realities in order to enhance regional cooperation.

Ultimately participants will learn to craft collaborative strategies to take our region into the future.

Dates: Jan. 16th—Jan. 17th (Friday 6 pm- 9 pm, Saturday 9 am- 4 pm)

Location: Richmond Hill, 2209 East Broad Street, Richmond, VA 23223

Cost: $75 (scholarships available to those who qualify)

Participation in this workshop is limited to 25 participants.

Please contact Sylvester (Tee) Turner or Matthew Freeman at (804) 358-1764 or at with any questions and for an application.
