Community Gathering: Speaking Down Barriers

thursday, March 15, 2018

Muskegon Heights Public School Academy
6:00 - 8:30 p.m.

“Rather than our differences act as a source of division, they can be the source of our collective strength.” – Speaking Down Barriers

Join us for a free community event – an evening of spoken word poetry and community dialogue about race and difference in Muskegon County.

During this initial Community Gathering Initiative event, facilitators will guide a community conversation to create shared learning and meaning, exploring issues of diversity and inclusion in a new way through art and the spoken word. Speaking Down Barriers consultants will be here in Muskegon to teach and facilitate a Muskegon County community discussion on our concerns and needs to bring about more racial harmony.

Hosted by Healthwest. Sponsored, in part, by the Community Foundation for Muskegon County.
