ZOOM: RPYA Community Chat Session January 13th at 1:00 pm
Join RPYA staff and our guest, Dr. Jon Paul, as we discuss current events and how those events are affecting us here in the Inland Empire. We watch scenes on TV and social media showing different experiences for those who are White compared to those who are Black. Is there a double standard here? Do the actions of one group have different consequences than the actions of the other group? We welcome you to come to chat with us. Register for Community Chat Sessions Here
