Our society is full of turmoil, confusion, and protests. Libraries and library professionals have been in the front line to offer libraries as a free, safe place where the public can debate, learn, and have conversations in their communities that include race and gender inequality, politics, social injustices, and many other topics. Whether you are pro or con, neutral or passionate; libraries offer refuge, support, and most importantly, information. In this webinar, you will hear examples of how a few libraries have tackled some of the nation’s toughest issues and how you can promote conversation and civil discourse in your community.
