Together We Dine

Tuesday, Octobe 4, 2022

You’re Invited

Project Unity and the Latino Arts Project are excited to partner and host Together We Dine on October 4th as we offer a community conversation on Yanga and the AfroMexican Experience as part of National Hispanic Heritage Month. This free exhibit brings awareness to the diversity of cultures within our communities and highlights the commonalities we share. Participants will tour the gallery while exploring the cultural impact of the AfroMexican experience. We hope you’ll join us to network with a diverse group of community members. Share a meal with total strangers as you engage in courageous and safe conversations about race relations, history and culture. Tell your experience and listen to the stories of your fellow diners. Led by a trained facilitator, you’ll participate in non-confrontational and structured dialogue. By discussing our beliefs and differences over dinner, we hope that the Together We Dine experience will continue to prove that what unites us is greater than what divides us.
