Loudoun’s Multicultural Advisory Committee Hosts Community Conversations on Race Relations

Community Conversations 2019

The Loudoun County Government’s Multicultural Advisory Committee will host two community discussions to explore racial biases on Friday, February 1, and Saturday, February 2, 2019. The events are free and open to the public.

The program is the same on both days and includes: 

  • A performance of an off-Broadway play with a challenging perspective;
  • A question-and-answer session with a panel;  
  • Facilitated small group discussions; and 
  • A brief presentation on unconscious bias with tips and action steps.

“As Loudoun becomes more culturally diverse, increased incidences of racism and misunderstandings can occur. We hope these discussions will help improve cultural awareness and communication in Loudoun County. We invite you to have a frank discussion with your neighbors and explore action steps to challenge biases in our community,” said Loudoun County Assistant County Administrator Valmarie Turner.

Due to the content of the play, the event is open only to those who are 13 years of age and older. Seating is limited. Pre-registration is required to attend. Register online at the links below:

The Loudoun County Multicultural Advisory Committee provides advice on multicultural issues and strives to create a greater awareness and understanding of cultural diversity in Loudoun County. It identifies issues affecting people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds and recommends strategies to address these issues. Members are appointed by the Loudoun County Administrator.
