The West Linn Alliance invites community members to participate in a BOOK/FILM DISCUSSION series for 2021, centered around the themes of confronting racism and creating an “inclusive” community. The focus is to engage the community of West Linn in meaningful thought and discussion around issues including countering racism, promoting inclusion, and making all people feel welcome in our community. Are we racists? How do we talk to our families and friends about this topic? How do we affect change in our state and nation to help undo our history of structural racism, to confront it honestly and with compassion?
A registration sheet for joining the group is on the West Linn Alliance website (https://westlinnalliance.org/book-film-group/), and monthly books and films will be listed there also. The West Linn Public Library is our partner in this project and they will try to have books set aside for check out to those who sign up (early sign up encouraged). Films can be accessed on the Library’s Kanopy link.
Specific meeting dates have not been finalized, but they will be posted on our website when available, and these dates will also be emailed to anyone who is already registered. Participation in the Book/Film Discussion Group is free of charge and the West Linn Alliance welcomes all who are interested in taking part in this important program.
