Room remains for more particpants! KFPL, in partnership with the Kingston Immigration Partnership and Youth to Kingston, are looking for members of the community interested in sharing their stories on racism and discrimination in our community. The goal of the Human Library is to create empathy and increase our sense of community by providing those in attendance with the opportunity to meet someone whom they would otherwise not know; to challenge stigma, stereotypes and prejudices through friendly conversation. This event is part of the #SayHello campaign. The event that will take place on Saturday, November 24 at the KFPL Isabel Turner Branch from 12 to 5 p.m.
If you or someone you know is interested in participating, please contact Jake Miller at firstname.lastname@example.org or 613-549-8888, ext. 3522, by Tuesday, October 16.
