Washington, NC. (WNCT) – The Inner Banks Stem Center is opening up conversations with people in the community, focusing on social reform issues.
People across the country staged a teleconference to address non-profit racial injustice.
The panel includes officials from law enforcement, healthcare and other agencies.
Al Powell, president of the IBX Stem Center, believes people need to hear and understand from different perspectives.
“The country is going through a fair amount of time at the moment, but you can’t convince all law enforcement to enforce a few laws, but obviously there needs to be some reform. Perhaps one way to reform it is to acquire an education and join some of these organizations and make further progress from them, ”Powell said.
Powell encourages everyone to reach out and encourage these conversations.
He said, “I think if from a law enforcement point of view and some people in our community to respect each other’s differences and not to be afraid of these differences if we get more sensitive training in this section.”
Organization leaders say it shows what internal banks are doing locally to promote the STEM Center healing and provide self-help to people in the community.
The Inner Banks Stem Center will upload the entire teleconference on its website.
