Introducing the Tom SenGupta Forum

Last March we announced the Sabo Center’s partnership with Changing the Norm of Society, a project conceived by Tom SenGupta, long time pharmacist and owner of Schneider Drug on University Avenue in Minneapolis, who convened hundreds of conversations on politics and public issues that took place after hours right in the aisles of the drug store. Today we are pleased to introduce the project under its new name, the Tom SenGupta Forum.

The project’s mission is to create inclusive places with opportunities for learning and sharing of ideas which inspire ordinary citizens to reclaim our moral compass and reshape our world. Planning is underway to open the Tom SenGupta Forum soon and the first topic will be the legacy of slavery and its impact on society today.
