"Days of Dialogue has the same purpose all the time; that is to give people a constructive way to deal with difficult issues, to advance deliberative democracy and improve the quality of public life," said Avis Ridley-Thomas, executive director of Days of Dialogue and co-director of the Institute of Non-Violence in Los Angeles. "It's so clear that it's necessary; everyone is talking about this Trayvon case. People want to have a constructive outlet to address their concerns."
Ridley-Thomas encouraged people of all ages and backgrounds to attend Saturday's dialogue to represent the community's diversity and said there will likely be additional dialogue days to discuss the issue in the near future.
"This is to provide mutual spaces for people to share their points of views," Supervisor Ridley-Thomas said. "It seems to be at the point of crisis that dialogue serves a very important purpose."
Also on Monday, the supervisor joined those calling for a boycott of Florida, but did not specify what kind of boycott he was seeking.
"My concern is to put a focus on the issue," he said.
The Empowerment Congress, which serves Los Angeles' Second District, will also host a community dialogue session on Trayvon Marton's death from 9 until 11:30 a.m. on Aug. 3 at the Constituent Services Center of Supervisor Ridley-Thomas in Exposition Park, 700 Exposition Park Dr., Los Angeles, Avis Ridley-Thomas said.
