It's Time to Talk

It's Time to Talk

Throughout the past few years, we’ve seen numerous stories across the nightly news and on social media that have exposed the very deep and real ways in which racial profiling and unconscious bias have caused harm to our communities and fellow citizens.

This year’s forum will feature powerful keynote speakers Andrew Collins and Jameel McGee. Collins was a police officer for nearly five years. He then served 18 months is prison for possession of drugs with the intent to distribute. McGee was falsely arrested by Collins on drug charges and served four years in prison until his case was overturned when Collins admitted to falsifying evidence. McGee and Collins now regularly speak together at universities, schools, churches, and civic organizations about their path to forgiveness and friendship.

Today, more than ever, it is essential that we step out of our comfort zones and engage with multiple voices, and embrace the reality that various perspectives are necessary for problem solving. ITT hopes to create a safe space for participants to listen to, learn from and teach others, so that we may find positive solutions for community change.

Hosted by YWCA Greater Cleveland.
