How are differences among people keeping our community from realizing its full potential?

The Suffolk Center on the Holocaust, Diversity & Human Understanding, Inc., together with the Suffolk County Human Rights Commission and the Suffolk County Interfaith Anti-Bias Task Force, are initiating a series of conversations to identify the state of difference and the actions needed to overcome the obstacles to a fully inclusive society.

Beginning the week of October 20, 2014, there will be several panel discussions about these questions, each from their unique perspective.

The public is invited to attend these free sessions.
