Westminster Town Hall Forum: The Arc Toward Justice 2022 @ Westminster Presbyterian
Join Pastor Holly for this Westminster Town Hall Forum to think about what has changed in America in the two years since George Floyd was murdered. Two journalists–Michele Norris and Yamiche Alcindor will be in discussion together about where we have come since George Floyd’s murder, and where we still need to go.
Town hall forums are one hour long, and there is a half an hour of music beforehand. They are free and open to all, and first-come, first serve, with limited seating because of covid. Doors open by 5 PM. Let me know you’ll be there and I’ll start a text string for meeting up!

Minnesota native Michele Norris is well-known as the longtime host of National Public Radio’s All Things Considered. As an opinion columnist for The Washington Post, she breaks down commonly held beliefs and attitudes on race, diversity and bias. She is also the creator of the Peabody Award-winning initiative, “The Race Card Project,” which fosters conversation among individuals about their differences.

Yamiche Alcindor is anchor and moderator of PBS’ Washington Week. She is also the Washington correspondent for NBC News covering the Biden administration, the impact of federal policies on communities and issues at the intersection of race, culture and politics. Before joining NBC, she was public broadcasting’s White House correspondent for the national news flagship The PBS NewsHour.

This unique engagement will be a chance to hear Ms. Norris and Ms. Alcindor in conversation with one another, reflecting on what they have covered as journalists and seen themselves in the past two years. The program will also include a time for conversation sparked by audience questions, moderated by Chanda Smith Baker, Chief Impact Officer and Senior Vice President of the Minneapolis Foundation.
