Exploring Together: A Focus on Race and Racism6:00 p.m.7:00 p.m.Digital Meeting

Talking about race and racism is often uncomfortable, sometimes confusing, and almost always difficult. Salem Public Library invites you to get uncomfortable with us as we provide an opportunity for community members to do the important work of exploring race and racism in America. In this series of community conversations, staff will act as facilitators and work to establish a respectful and supportive space for everyone to contribute their thoughts, share questions, and explore the ideas from the readings and videos. Each of the three discussions will have its own focus: Session 1: Systemic Racism and White Privilege (July 28-DONE) Session 2: Race and the Criminal Justice System (August 25-DONE) Session 3: The History of Racism in America and Oregon (September 22) Sign up to get Exploring Together Zoom login information by email on the morning of the discussion. We ask that participants prepare by reading, listening to, or watching at least one of the recommended resource for the discussion, as listed at the top of the sign-up form.
