The night will be alight with the two trucks and many people gathering to celebrate art and conversation.

The YWCA, committed to eliminating racism, would like to help the community talk through rather than around the issue of racism, learn to share a common language and practice conversation skills by looking at events and institutions through a racial equity lens. One opportunity for such practice is the “Let’s Talk @ Lunch” program. Participants bring their lunch and the YWCA Evanston/North Shore provides the beverage, facilitator and a topic, article or video clip as the catalyst for honest conversation.

The gathering begins at noon; conversation runs from 12:10 to 1:00 p.m. Following are “Let’s Talk @ Lunch” dates and locations:

Shorefront Legacy Center in the Family Focus Building, 2010 Dewey. First Thursday of the month: Oct. 3, Nov. 7, Dec. 5.

Curt’s Cafe, 2922 Central St. Second Wednesday of the month: Let’s Talk Over Coffee, 1:30-2:30 p.m. Oct. 9, Nov. 13, Dec. 11.
