Diverse Fort Collins: Week of Feb. 14

Hello, friends!

Happy Valentine’s Day! Be sure to tell a loved one how much you appreciate them.

We have so much great news to share with you.

Our Jan. 26 book discussion drew about 45 folks!

Thanks to all who joined us to discuss Chapters 1-4 of White Fragility: Why Its So Hard For White People To Talk About Racism by Robin DiAngelo.

We packed the upstairs Event Hall and the first floor with six small groups. Thank you to Mia, Jessica, Jamie, and Katherine for volunteering as “guides” for these discussions.

Join us in a NEW location on Feb. 23 for conversations about Chapters 5-8! Details and RSVP at http://www.DiverseFortCollins.com/events
