Listen. Talk. Learn hosted by Kirkwood Public Library
June 10, 2019 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm
Diversity Awareness Partnership (DAP)’s Listen. Talk. Learn. sessions are intended to help strengthen our community’s ability to dialogue about race relations by facilitating important and difficult discussions on race, unconscious bias, and our lived experiences. Our hope is that by talking to one another and learning more about communities to which we have limited exposure, we will be more effective partners in the ongoing work of racial justice.
For 18 years, DAP has worked alongside you towards a more inclusive St. Louis region and beyond. Over that time, much has changed about our social landscape. National events like the violence in Charlottesville and local events like the Stockley verdict continue to underscore the importance of relearning how to communicate with one another in constructive ways in order to create a more inclusive climate for all.
Attendees will leave the session having been able to:
- Model and evaluate the effectiveness of conversations about race
- Articulate the experiences of those who don’t share one’s racial identity
- Reflect on the recent surge in racist ideology in the United States, and construct helpful responses
