The ability to have meaningful conversations on Race and Ethnicity is instrumental in developing a society that reflects the multi-faceted population of this country. However, this skill is not taught in schools, nor is it easily acquired. Unless one is part of a diverse community comprised of members willing to intentionally share their experiences with one another for mutual growth, most people will not have deep exposure to these conversations. The purpose of this conversation is for participants to build on their previous conversation in affinity groups and increase their capacity to engage in discussions that many typically experience as challenging.
In the living room conversations, participants will be able to take turns talking to share and learn.
Facilitated by library staff members, these conversations offer a simple, sociable, and structured way to practice communicating across differences while building understanding and relationships.
Registration is required. For questions, please email email@example.com.
Zoom online meeting link will be emailed to registered participants two days before the event.
