Let's Get (Un)Comfortable: A Social Justice Discussion Group

Tuesday, August 24, 2021

Talking about issues related to race, racism and social justice isn't easy, but if we want to see positive change in ourselves and our community, we have to be willing to address what makes us uncomfortable. Join Worthington Libraries staff each month and, with the help of books, movies, art and/or guest speakers, we'll discuss where we've been, where we are and the future society we hope to build. Presented in partnership with the City of Worthington Community Relations Commission and Worthington Libraries. August activity: A discussion of the documentary "13th," led by Dr. Domonique Rice, a therapist and the founder/CEO of Hope, Love, and Dream, Inc., a trauma-informed counseling center for those impacted by incarceration, and Chase Irwin, a case manager at Alvis, a Columbus halfway house offering reentry services and support. Participants should watch "13th" prior to the meeting.

 Participants will meet via Zoom. When registering, please make sure your email address is correct as Zoom invitations will be emailed 24 hours before the event.
