June 17 launch for Community Speaker Series from D214 and LWV

A community speaker series focusing on anti-racism, Diversity, Equity and Inclusion will be launched this summer - with the first event scheduled for 6 p.m. on Thursday, June 17 - through a partnership between D214 and the League of Women Voters-Arlington Heights-Mount Prospect-Buffalo Grove Areas.

The initial event is virtual and will focus on bystander intervention training in response to a rise in anti-Asian harassment. This session – led by Advancing Justice Chicago, in partnership with the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) Chicago and Hollaback! – will help people identify hate incidents and learn to take action safely and effectively.
