Diverse Society: Residents to discuss tolerance

The City of Longview Partners in Prevention’s Race Relations Committee will host “World Café: Tolerance or lack thereof in a diverse society” at 6:00 p.m., Wednesday, May 30, 2012, at Stamper Park Resource Center, 502 South Center.  Discussion will focus on matters of tolerance that currently challenge communities.
The World Café is a conversational process based on an innovative method for hosting topics of conversation that matter.  This World Café is hosted by the Race Relations Committee and will focus on open and civil dialogue in small group conversations. One of the goals will be to brainstorm solutions for the betterment of the community.
Keeta King, liaison to the Race Relations Committee, said, “The World Café is used as a platform for civil conversation about questions that are important to the community. The small group format provides people a safe environment to convey their ideas, connect with diverse perspectives, and share discoveries made through the process.”  The event is free, but an RSVP is requested by calling 903-237-1019.
