Diversity and Inclusion Committee

LWV Chicago's Committee on Diversity and Inclusion is sponsoring a discussion group that will meet on the second Monday of each month from 6-8 p.m at the LWV Chicago offices. This year the group will explore Racial Equity and Justice: Learning How to Move Forward.

Each session will center around a text. Participants should have read some portion of the book, writings by the author, or reviews of the book to have some knowledge of what’s being discussed. Be prepared to have your concept of race and racism challenged.
