    Beginning at 12 p.m., this event will feature a collection of readings, artwork, educational sessions, trainings, music, discussions, and more. Local experts share their knowledge of topics ranging from “How does the history of the Ku Klux Klan in the Chippewa Valley affect us today?” and “Race, Civility, and the First Amendment” to panels discussing Race & Religion and the ABCs of Racism.

    Hear from community leaders who share their thoughts on building trust, unity, and repairing relationships all in the spirit of Dr. King’s message.
