Each week, in a different city, a cross-section of influencers, stakeholders, educators, students, parents and politicians will come together for a pre-screening of that week's episode and a panel discussion that helps drive engagement and a call to action for locally-hosted, candid conversations about race and equity. The ten cities include: Atlanta, Detroit, New York City, Boston, Los Angeles, Washington D.C., Dallas, Charlotte, Oakland/SF and Chicago. Bring America to Me to your school or community at
