LA Days of Dialogue addresses Trayvon Martin verdict

Days of Dialogue — a long-time NCDD organizational member based on Los Angeles — got some great TV coverage of their recent event in a series of dialogues designed to help the L.A. community process their emotions and opinions about the Trayvon Martin verdict.


They’re in the midst of running a series of three events titled Days of Dialogue:  The Death of Trayvon Martin… Unfinished Business.  The first event, which received the coverage on NBC News in Southern California, took place on  Saturday (July 27).

The Days of Dialogue events are hosted by The Empowerment Congress, Price Chapel A.M.E., Holman Methodist Church, The Violence Prevention Coalition of Los Angeles, Community Partners, Urban League, Holman Methodist Church, and others.

Last Friday, Avis Ridley-Thomas asked me to share a flyer with the network on these events, but I was traveling at the time. In the flyer, people interested in attending, facilitating, or offering other assistance are asked to contact Maria Garcia at maria.l.garcia@lacity.org or (213) 485-8324.

Upcoming dialogues are scheduled for:

  • Saturday, August 3, 2013, 9:00 a.m., Empowerment Congress, 700 State Drive, Los Angeles, CA 90007
  • Sunday, August 11, 2013, 6:00 p.m., Community for Racial Justice, The Church in Ocean Park, 235 Hill Street, Santa Monica, CA 90405
  • Saturday, August 17, 2013 10:00 a.m. Holman United Methodist Church, 3320 West Adams Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90018

By the way — one great way to learn more about Days of Dialogue is to watch the great video interview Jeffrey Abelson filmed at the 2012 National Conference on Dialogue & Deliberation in Seattle.
