Darius Pettway has made it his life goal to empower youth to unlock their own hidden potential, and is the founder of the Darius Pettway Youth Leadership Conference and has published an excellent autobiography “A Chance To” that we highly recommend everyone read!
Darius will provide a welcome introduction to the group, and will be an active participant along with special appointed speakers (representing a variety of perspectives including law enforcement, educators, correctional officers, youth, …) Kevin will help set the framework for discussion, mutual respect, and providing a safe place to share differing viewpoints to encourage a deeper understanding of these complex issues.
We won’t solve all the world’s problems in this session, but we hope to open the door to maybe a bit more understanding and openness to discussing these important topics.
These are some of the topics we may cover:
- Does systemic racism exist and if it does, how do we fix it?
- George Floyd Death
- How and what can we do to change the division between law enforcement and the community?
- Why is this happening?
- Are there disproportionate numbers of minorities incarcerated and if so, why?
- Are black communities underserved?
- Are white communities underserved?
- Does police brutality exist across America and if so, how do we fix it?
- Do you agree or disagree with the current looting and rioting?
- What role does the church play in current events
