“Standing Up to Book Banning” by Dr. Christopher Harris

Zoom

Unite Against Book Bans campaign by the American Library Association (ALA) aims to raise awareness of the dramatic rise in censorship and book banning.

The ALA fully supports the right of every parent to control what their child reads, but not the right to restrict what other children read, or to limit the books that are available to young people in the library.

Colloquy

Zoom

Colloquy is an opportunity to explore and reflect on a particular aspect of life in a structured and facilitated small-group setting in a nonjudgmental, confidential atmosphere. Colloquy was created more than 25 years ago by Arthur Dobrin (now Leader Emeritus of the Ethical Society of Long Island) and brought to Asheville by Joy McConnell, Consulting Leader for the Ethical Humanist Society of Asheville. Colloquy inspires participants to raise awareness of their own views, emotions and values. Guided by a facilitator, participants listen to a topic read by the leader, and take turns sharing responses – speaking from personal experiences, thoughts and feelings.
