Participants will be able to talk about race and racism outside of the context of the Civil Rights Movement by discovering new ways to make a safe space to engage in dialogue around ethnicity, culture, race, and cultural proficiency. Participants will also begin to identify and use strategies and mechanisms to respond to microaggressions that occur in an organization. 

This program is part of our Norfolk Community Read series and will be led by Jessica Pepple, Director of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion for Norfolk, Plainville, Wrentham & King Philip Schools.
