Winter-Spring Series 2017:
Who belongs? Dialogues on Race and Ethnicity in Medford and Beyond
January 29th 2017 through March 12th 2017
Our first conversations series was an amazing success! For our first conversations series 100 members of the Medford community participated in nine conversation "circles" that each met five times over the course of six weeks. Twenty-six of the participants completed ten hours of facilitation training from Everyday Democracy to serve as facilitators for their circles. The widely publicized Opening Event maxed out our facility and had over 215 attendees with a number of volunteers recruited at the last minute to serve as additional facilitators. Our closing "Action Event" pulled together issues and ideas from circle participants and members of the Medford Community. You can read those issues and ideas for actions generated by the circles below.
