Why Have a Conversation?

At this moment, we have an opportunity to look at the world with new understanding.  In the wake of current events, many people are asking how can I help? and what can I do? 

While policy changes are important, that is not the only work to be done.

Together, One Lincoln focuses on how each person can help create a community of racial equity by starting a conversation
