As of Sunday, The Talk is full and registration is closed. But if you find somaindy on Periscope, we'll have a live video stream of The Talk you can watch from home!
Could Indianapolis become the next Ferguson?
It may be only a matter of time before Indianapolis finds itself in a situation like Ferguson, Baltimore, or Chicago. Where something triggers underlying social tensions in our city and fractures our community. Where we find ourselves divided – possibly violently – by issues related to race.
How can we get ahead of the violence and stop these problems before they start? How can we address these issues peacefully and thoughtfully now, before we have to do it over shock and grief and anger? How can we cultivate racial unity and social solidarity, to heal the deep divisions under the surface of our society?
The Talk is aimed to address these exact questions. Local leaders from the media, the nonprofit sector, the government, and the church will discuss major obstacles to solidarity in Indianapolis today. They’ll also discuss ways we as a city can act to heal tensions, pursue unity, and deepen cross-cultural relationships, and field questions about how different institutions in Indianapolis can contribute to those goals.
When: Wednesday, February 17 | 6:30-8:30p
Where: Soma Church Midtown | 2815 E 62nd St
