Courageous Conversations: Confronting Prejudice
February 12, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
How should we respond to discrimination when we encounter it? How do we respectfully correct misinformation or stereotypes we may hear at home, school or work? How can we counteract biases from xenophobia to homophobia? What does it mean to be a good ally or upstander? Join us at Barrington’s White House for the sixth session of A Year of Courageous Conversations.
