The year 2020 unveiled the good, the bad and the ugly of our society. We experienced a worldwide public health pandemic and also saw injustices occurring around the country. There has been a lot to talk about. One subject that continues to be difficult to talk about is racism. Frankfort’s very own Focus On Race Relations (FORR) is partnering with the Franklin County Cooperative Extension Service to engage in healthy dialogues on race. We believe that it is time to move forward by creating a safe place for individuals to have hard conversations. The goal is for participants to develop greater trust, deeper understanding of the problems of racism that have a negative impact on families and communities. The series will be held via Zoom.
