Diversity

Race and Diversity in Hopewell Valley:

Educating a Diverse Community

“We have flown the air like birds and swum the sea like fishes, but have yet to
learn the simple act of walking the earth like brothers.”
― Martin Luther King Jr.

In response to your continuing interest in discussing the issue of race and
diversity in Hopewell Valley, we want to extend to you an invitation to join with
other neighbors of all backgrounds, from all over Hopewell Valley to sit down for
a delicious evening meal and discussion about this important topic. Every voice
matters, every voice counts. Come and join us!

Our guest contributor will be Dr. Rosetta Treece, principal of the Timberlane
Middle School. She will be sharing briefly about the challenges of educating and
administrating in an increasingly diverse community, how diversity challenges
dominate educational paradigms and how the collaborations between community
and school can create an inclusive, informed, compassionate and globally minded
atmosphere in both places.

Please join us for dinner and real conversation about this important issue and
current events. Please remember this is a conversation, not a lecture or a class, so
everyone is encouraged not to just attend, but to participate. All voices will be
heard. We are extending an invitation to all high school juniors and seniors as
well (please see Mrs. Pinnelli at CHS and she’ll connect you).

When: Friday, October 14, 2016 at 6:30pm – 9pm
Where: St. Matthews Episcopal Church, Rev. Barbara Briggs, Rector
300 South Main Street
Pennington, NJ 08534
