Challenging the Silence Series

Posted on August 20, 2020 by Healthy Baby Network

The death of George Floyd stoked pain and frustration created by racially motivated deaths unreconciled for decades, reigniting and propelling forward the Black Lives Matter Movement. The world has experienced rallies, rioting, and large protests culminating in calls for change at every level.

While we watch what is happening around the world, we also focus our attention inward and ask ourselves, “What now?” Healthy Baby Network is proud to present the “Challenging the Silence” series, focused on creating truthful and transparent conversations about what we’ve learned, what we still need to learn, and where we go next.

These sessions will be facilitated by Healthy Baby Network Executive Director, Sherita Bullock.

All sessions take place from 10:00am-12:00pm.
