Long Beach Opera believes that discussions inspired by art should extend beyond the lobby of the theater. For this reason, LBO is using its 40th anniversary season theme, Justice, as a catalyst to present its brand new event series The Community Conversations Initiative. This initiative features five “Conversations” and three youth programs, and will create community-wide discussions about race, equity, and the justice system throughout Long Beach.

All events are free to the public. However, space is limited; reservations are strongly suggested. You can also join the conversation on our Facebook group; Facebook.com/groups/LBOConversations.

The community conversations are supported by a grant from the Knight Foundation.
