Everyone has a Story Human Library
March 15 @ 10:30 am - 12:30 pmFree
Join Owens Community College on March 15 for a Human Library. Hear from people with different experiences, religion, backstories, and lifestyles to learn more and to foster empathy, remove stigma and educate others about topics on which they have little to no knowledge.
The Human Library Organization is an international organization and movement that first started in Copenhagen, Denmark in 2000. Since its inception, Human Libraries have been hosted in 85 countries around the world. The goal of a Human Library is to address people’s prejudices by helping them to talk to those they would not normally meet. The organization uses a library analogy of lending people rather than books. Learn more about Human Library here.
