VNC to hold community dialogues on diversity

Posted: Friday, January 6, 2017

The City of Huntington Prevention Task Force has planned Community Dialogues on Diversity to take place January 16, April 17, July 17 and October 16. All dialogues will be held at the Huntington City-Township Public Library from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m.

The purpose of the Community Dialogues on Diversity series is to bring people together around topics that affect our community and to hear different thoughts and opinions in order to understand one another more fully in diversity and disagreement. These conversations align with and put into action the Huntington City Council mission statement which reads that Huntington will be ‘a community of civility and inclusion, where diversity is honored and differences are respected.’

The dialogues will include a panel of four to five speakers to answer questions based on the evening’s topic. Audience members will also have the opportunity to submit questions. With January’s conversation taking place on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, the topic will be on race. April 17 will focus on gender inequality. July 17 will be on the LGBTQ community and October 16 will highlight poverty in America.

These dialogues are free and open to the public. For questions, please call Victory Noll Center at (260) 200-1740.
