Listening to Those We Serve
I thought that the training [by the Muslim speaker] was outstanding. It was relevant, informative, and engaging… this is training that all public officials could benefit from, and I learned a lot about Muslims that I did not know. Everything we learned can be put to practical use and will ensure we continue to offer the highest standards of service to all members of our community.
This was a very educational panel and presentation by the speakers today [Muslim, Jewish, African American, Asian American, Indigenous, and Hispanic]. Anyone who hasn’t had or taken the time to learn the roots of structural and historical elements of racism, colorism and what we can do about it would gain a great deal from this ING panel.
