We are excited to welcome Dr. Timothy Berry as our keynote speaker.

Frequently, he is invited to speak in schools, universities, conferences, businesses, and churches to share his insights and research surrounding race literacy, organizational transformation, and antiracism.

We will also have reflections from our community, selections of Martin Luther King, Jr. speeches read by members of the Chaska High School Speech Team, and the presentation of the 2022 Chaska Human Rights Award.

Special thanks to the Chaska Parks and Recreation Department, the Chaska High School Speech Team, Integrated Arts Academy, Treks and Trails Preschool, Chaska Cub, Dunn Brothers, Dunkin, and the many members of our community for making this possible.

If you can't make it in person, you can catch the broadcast on Comcast channel 15 or the Chaska Community Television YouTube channel
