Free and open to the public.
Inspired by the format of a book club but designed to include both print and other media such as movies and podcasts, On the Same Page seeks to bring individuals together for an open conversation. We acknowledge that much remains to be learned about inequities and systemic injustices and propose that we will benefit from exploring these topics with each other.
For our next meeting at 12:00 p.m. on Friday, September 24, 2021, please feel free to read/view some or all of the following material:
