Issues of race, diversity and bias will be the focus of a "Not in Our Town" workshop in Palo Alto next week that will include former Palo Alto City Councilwoman LaDoris Cordell, Palo Alto Vice Mayor Peter Drekmeier and East Palo Alto Police Chief Ron Davis as panelists.
The event is part of a regional effort to connect civic leaders, educators, activists and citizens in an effort to reduce hate violence.
The workshop will be noon-5:30 p.m. March 13 at the Palo Alto Art Center. It is being sponsored by the Palo Alto and Mountain View human relations commissions, the Network for a Hate-Free Community, the ACLU-Midpeninsula Chapter and the Palo Alto Art Center. The Silicon Valley Foundation is the major funder of the event.
The event is open to the public but space is limited and people need to call Erika at 510-268-9675 ext. 310 to reserve a place.
