We have three talented facilitators – Jamie, Jessica and Mia – who will guide small-group conversations during our Jan. 26 Diverse Fort Collins book discussion of Chapters 1-4 of White Fragility by Robin DiAngelo.
Some groups will be geared toward teenagers, LGBTQIA+, people of color, etc. if there’s interest among attendees.
Join us at the accessible first floor meeting space of Wolverine Farm Letterpress & Publick House.
