RACIAL JUSTICE - LISTENING AND LEARNING
"A reckoning on race relations" is how many in the media have characterized the events and responses that we've all experienced or witnessed in 2020. Conversations of the Valley aims to take what can sometimes seem like far off voices in the national media -- and bring some of those voices a little closer to home.
