During times like these, we are reminded of the importance of collaboration and the strength of community. To help bring people together, Tarrant County College is hosting the 9th Annual Intergenerational Community Conversation on Friday, Oct. 16, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., as a virtual event on Microsoft Live.
Each year, TCC hosts the Intergenerational Community Conversation, established nine years ago by TCC Trustee Gwen Morrison, Ph.D., to promote civic responsibility, community engagement and capacity-building along with developing practical solutions for community concerns and knowledge-building.
The event provides opportunities for community members, TCC employees and TCC students to interact and discuss issues facing the community. This year’s theme is “Meet Me at the Intersection: Forward, Together.”
The event will commence with artist, consultant and community activist Jonathan Morrison delivering the welcome. Afterwards, several moderated panel discussions will be offered to enrich the community’s thinking about issues important to all North Texans, from the Silent Generation to Generation Z. Topics include social progress, educational opportunities, multigenerational collaboration and positive social change.
Organizers are proud to have the Honorable Clifford Davis, Trinity Harvest Church Lead Pastor Ray Taylor, long-time social justice activist Opal Lee, TCC Trustee Teresa Ayala and TCC Chancellor Eugene Giovannini participating in this year’s Intergenerational Community Conversation. TCC Academic Advisor Cal Quigley and Gwen Morrison will serve as moderators.
