The Conversations We Should Be Having

The Conversations We Should Be Having | A Podcast Listening Party

Fri 7/15 @ 7:00 pm 8:30 pm EDT

Join the BLM Seacoast co-founder Tanisha Johnson, Eliot Chief of Police Elliott Moya, and Green Acre staff for the launch of the much-anticipated new podcast The Conversations We Should Be Having. Produced by Green Acre, a Bahá’í Center of Learning, this podcast brings together two individuals that society says are on opposite sides of a political chasm, to have conversations about race and justice in America—but in a way that bridges the divide.  

This podcast has the potential to serve as a national model for how to have potentially challenging conversations with individuals who may have widely contrasting views. In this time of great division, we need examples of finding points of agreement, examples of deep listening and sharing, and examples of effectively grappling with challenging issues.  

Be one of the first to hear this groundbreaking podcast before episode one launches on July 18th!

The Hosts

Tanisha Johnson - BLM

Tanisha Johnson

Empowered activist. Community service leader. Racial justice organizer

Tanisha Johnson is passionate about dismantling anti-Blackness and has worked steadily in upraising empowerment for women, youth and people of color. As the co-founder of Black Lives Matter Seacoast, her work demands an investment in education, social services, enhancing the health of black people and away from exploitative forces such as law enforcement, jail and prisons. Tanisha currently is the Child and Family Services Director for Community Action Partnership of Strafford County, and lives in Exeter, NH.

Elliott Moya, Chief of Police

Elliott Moya

Unassuming Leadership. Empathetic policing. Community commitment.

Elliott Moya assumed the role of Chief of Police of Eliot, Maine in 2016.  He believes that advancing policing, in part, comes with a focus on the wellness of our officers, and sometimes, policing, in the traditional sense, isn’t always the most effective way to solve problems in communities. Rather, empathy, understanding, and partnerships can have incredible effectiveness.
