Race Relations expert comes to Nelson

MEDIA RELEASE

Race Relations expert comes to Nelson.

Nelson has the opportunity to learn from American expertise in on-campus race relations, with the visit of Dr Jeanne Gazel ,the director of an undergraduate race relations programme in Michigan.

Dr Dr Gazel is the director and co founder of the Multi-Racial Unity Living Experience program, at Michigan State University. Claire Nichols from the Nelson Multi Ethnic Council said Dr Gazel was invited to Nelson by the Nelson Bahai community, working with the Nelson Multi-Ethnic Council to arrange the seminars.

“The public seminars will be a great follow up from the public meeting that was called by the police in August on race related crime in Nelson,” said Claire Nichols. “I am hoping to get some ideas from Dr Gazel as to how we can work together as a community to promote positive race relations and celebrate our diversity.”
