A call for change has been the focus of protests from coast to coast after the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis. The protests in Shreveport have been peaceful with a focus on men who have died in police custody in the past 2 months with little or no information available.

To talk about the racial divide is what many say must happen alongside the protests and marches.

The Dialogue on Race has been in place in Louisiana for 20 years. The program is "dedicated to the elimination of racism through education, action and transformation."

CEO Maxine Crump says all of us can play a role in making changes.

Crump develop this structured program of six two-hour weekly sessions which is led by a bi-racial team of trained facilitators. The YWCA of Northwest Louisiana hosts the Dialogue on Race in Shreveport.
