A book discussion group where we look at issues of race, ethnicity, equity, and inclusion.
The Reading for Change Book Discussion Group will explore Race and Ethnicity Equity and Inclusion (REEI). Through group discussion, we will expand our knowledge of systemic racism and intersectional social justice issues, examining how we uphold these systems of inequality, and identify steps we can take to combat inequalities. We hope to provide an inclusive space to explore meaningful change.
This group will spend two or three months discussing one title so that we have time to unpack the topics in the book and look for ways we can impact change in the community.
In December and January we will be discussing Things We Couldn't Say by Jay Coles.
There's always been a hole in Gio's life. Not because he's into both guys and girls. Not because his father has some drinking issues. Not because his friends are always bringing him their drama. No, the hole in Gio's life takes the shape of his birth mom, who left Gio, his brother, and his father when Gio was nine years old. For eight years, he never heard a word from her . . . and now, just as he's started to get his life together, she's back.
