Conversations on Race

Dr. Ed Lee

The City has enlisted the assistance of Dr. Ed Lee of Emory University to prepare a series of facilitated conversations on race following the November, 2020 election. Dr. Lee has worked with the City of Decatur and the Decatur police department, among other organizations, and is putting together a structure for us to bring residents, businesses, police, and elected leadership into this necessary work. See Dr. Lee as moderator for City of Decatur’s Anti-Racism Speaker Series.

Series starts April 8th, 2021. Click to Register  for the rest of the Series. note: You do not need to re-register if you originally signed up for all three.

 

 

Posts for Peace and Justice Workshop

Posts for Peace and Justice

In late 2019 our development committee, ROKS, planned a Posts for Peace and Justice Workshop for the Spring of 2020. This project will bring together Pine Lake and surrounding community artists to create 9 original “Peace Posts” for display on Rockbridge Road, using a multi-cultural and multi-lingual WELCOME theme.  

Unfortunately, the pandemic intervened and made the project impossible for 2020. We are hoping to resurrect this project as soon as it is safe to do so.
