Silicon Valley FACES, a South Bay nonprofit dedicated to ending bigotry and violence, will host a community forum about the Black Lives Matter movement.
The Wednesday afternoon event will feature guest speaker Sydney Webster, the minister in residence at Oakland’s Lakeshore Avenue Baptist Church.
Webster promotes social, racial and economic justice as a minister and member of the Interfaith Committee for Justice.
The forum marks the second in an ongoing speaker series that aims to promote unity in a diverse world. Moina Shaiq kicked off the series in October with a question-and-answer session about being a Muslim woman in America.
Organizers hope to include a wide range of community members at future talks, from scholars and writers to poets and activists and people of all faiths from all economic and professional spheres.
The event is free, but reservations are required because space is limited.
WHAT: Diversity Forum
WHEN: noon to 1pm Wednesday
WHERE: Silicon Valley FACES, Suite 150, 1401 Parkmoor Ave., San Jose
