TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - Creating change through conversation.

That was the goal of Saturday morning's Strengthening Communities By Breaking Barriers event at Central Christian Church.

Through a panel discussion, members of the community came for an open dialogue on racism, social injustice and ways to come together and combat it.

From students to career men and women in the Wabash Valley, it's a discussion meant for all seats at the table.

"We've been studying white privilege, and reading about actual issues affecting people of color, and figuring out what our role is, what we can do as Christians," said Beth Duley, Social Justice League, "We're called to love the world, and that includes everybody, and you can't love the world if you don't know the world."

Panelists included News 10's Alia Blackburn, Dr. Samory Rashid, Bobbie DeBow and Davonta Morrison.
