Making Positive Change in Our Community

Are you interested in meaningful discussion about issues that separate us from others in our community, including race, gender, and cultural differences? Do you want to take a stand against prejudice and oppression? Are you ready to do the reflective work necessary to create a more inclusive community?

The library is a member of Skokie Cares, a community group that is sponsoring SEED (Seeking Educational Equity and Diversity) equity training during the 2020–21 school year, for people who live, work, or have children who currently attend school in Skokie. During online monthly sessions, you will learn about systems of oppression, power, and privilege that operate within our society. You will take part in thought-provoking exercises and discuss video clips and readings. You will be challenged, enlightened, and changed.
