Educational Series on Reducing Prejudice: “A Discussion of Isms.”

Not in Our Town Bowling Green (NIOT BG) and the BGSU Office of Multicultural Affairs will be hosting a program entitled “A Discussion of Isms” on Wednesday, May 17, from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Wood County District Public Library, 251 N. Main St. The session will be held in the first floor meeting room at the library.
The program is the second program in the Educational Series on Reducing Prejudice.

The workshop is interactive and designed to be a springboard for discussions of the sensitive topics and issues around various –ism issues.  The session will encourage participants to think about assumptions, stereotypes, and choices we make or could make. These topics can and do impact our community.

This workshop is based on the principles that every issue counts and hearing stories relating to life experiences, especially those who identified differently from us, can shifts attitudes and build allies.

The third and final program in the Reducing Prejudice series will be held on Thursday, June 1, from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Wood County District Public Library. The program is on Safe Zone Training. The workshop provides education concerning LGBTQ+ issues and seeks to improve the environment for LGBTQ+ people.
