Implicit bias refers to “attitudes or stereotypes that affect our understanding, actions, and decisions in an unconscious manner”. In practice, implicit bias has real-world implications, often producing worse social, economic, political, and health outcomes for people of color, women, and marginalized groups.

Empty Chair Town Hall for Senator Thom Tillis:
***Please RSVP, so we can promote the event!!****
Indivisible Triangle Daily Call to Action is sponsoring another empty chair town hall for Thom Tillis. When he was campaigning, Senator Tillis promised that he would hold town halls to meet with his voters and hear our concerns. He hasn’t done that. But ALL the other major candidates HAVE confirmed. Democrats Erica Smith and Cal Cunningham have stated they plan to be in attendance, along with Libertarian Shannon Bray.
While all questions are certainly welcome, the primary theme of this town hall will be healthcare. We’d like you to (1) sign up to attend and (2) come prepared with your questions about Tillis’s views on healthcare.
Event details: Empty Chair Town Hall, Thursday, February 20, 6 PM, Youngsville Community Center, 115 E Main St., Youngsville, NC.
