Conversations For Change: Race, Racism, and Anti-Racism
Meaningful conversations about race are important in a society that reflects the multi-faceted population of this country. Unless one is part of a diverse community made up of members willing to intentionally share their experiences, most people do not have an opportunity to have these conversations. This Conversation for Change offers the opportunity to discuss race, racism, and anti-racism. What are your thoughts and experiences about racism & anti-racism? We will also discuss ways to confront our positionality to enact change. This month we encourage everyone to watch an hour long video on racism called Truth and Reconciliation from the Nelson Mandela society.
Conversations for Change is temporarily moving online due the cancellation of library events caused by COVID-19. This conversation will be taking place on the online Zoom meeting platform. Registrants will receive Zoom meeting instructions via email prior to the event.
The conversations are designed to foster greater understanding among individuals who may have different viewpoints. Participants in these small group conversations, guided by a trained host, practice being open and curious about all perspectives, with a focus on learning from one another.
Space is limited. Registration is required. Instructions for joining the online discussion will be emailed prior to the event.
Prior to registering, please review the Conversation Agreements.
