The theme is “From tragedy to transformation.” It will address issues arising from the verdict in George Zimmerman’s trial for the shooting death of Trayvon Martin.

The purpose of the meeting is to engage a multi-ethnic audience in a discussion of the causes of racial barriers, tensions, misconceptions and unwarranted reactions to bring about a higher level of cultural and ethnic appreciation and social progress.
