Maximize—Don’t Marginalize, Week 5 – Race and Policing: Black and Blue Lives Matter

Race and Policing: Black and Blue Lives Matter with Chaplain Paul Lyda and Pastor Cliff Chappell. This session will seek to account for various injustices, including how we all too easily minimize people based on their skin color or the badge and uniform they wear.
