Help build inclusive community

Citizens who began meeting after U.Va. students were attacked by local youths about a year and a half ago are holding a workshop April 12 to further understanding about racial and ethnic issues. Open to the public, “Many Races, One Community” will take place from 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Buford School. Ishmail Conway, assistant professor of education and associate director of Upward Bound, will speak, and trained facilitators will assist participants. The diverse group, recently dubbed Citizens for a United Community, organized the event with several co-sponsors, including U.Va. Their intent is to develop an action plan for creating a more inclusive community. Lunch, also free, will be included; attendees should register with Nancy O’Brien at 293-8480 or
