10th Anniversary Theme: Reflecting on our past. Facing the future.

We marked the Dialogue’s Tenth Year Anniversary and the beginning of what promises to be an exciting 2023 on Saturday, January 28, 2023 at 10AM. We reviewed ten years of accomplishments, heard brief reports from the Issue Groups, and heard personally from student and adult panelists about their experiences, insights, and priorities combating racism in Montgomery County.

The event was covered by the Roanoke Times: “Dialogue on Race reports 10-year impact, moves forward as work is unfinished,” January 28, 2023.
