Hunger Mountain: Members Listening Session – Diversity
Sunday, Oct 4 at 6pm – 8pm via Zoom (link to be sent upon registration)
Session Title / Question: How can we promote racial equity at the Hunger Mountain Co-op?
The council is interested in hearing from you! Join us on 10/4 at 6pm for a facilitated two-hour session on how HMC can evolve to become racially inclusive to the entire community. During this session we’ll work in small and large groups to think about how we (the Coop Membership) fit into the larger movement for racial justice. We’ll tackle questions (and feelings) about racial inclusion, unconscious racism and how we can move towards a more racially inclusive and just Co-op community.
To prepare for this listening session, we invite you to listen to the Code Switch podcast “Why Now, White People?” https://www.npr.org/2020/06/16/878963732/why-now-white-people
This session is open to the entire HMC membership. Please be aware that there may be questions and conversations specific to ongoing racial violence and its impacts on our community. There is a limit of 20 participants so register early!
