Monroe Reads to End Racism

I established a free collaborative program series with Monroe Branch Library and Monroe Family YMCA designed by turns for families, teens, and adults. Beginning with common ground in a book selection, participants explore black history, unconscious bias, and ways to be an effective ally.  Here are flyers representing the past three events.
