Let's Talk About: Civility | February 23 at 1 p.m.

We live in a society where civility is on the decline. How do we get back to a place of mutual respect even when we disagree? Let's discuss it. 

A panel of experts is being reviewed. Details will be provided soon to help you prepare your questions for the discussion. 

 
Registration is required for this event. Seating is open and provided first-come, first-served. Doors open at 12:30 p.m.

Have Questions?
Do I have to take part in the discussion?

Only if you want to participate. You can join us as an observer or a thoughtful contributor and we promise to provide a respectful environment for you to learn about and/or discuss the issue.

Why don’t you talk about uplifting topics?

We do that too, but in a different way — at our storytimes and during our daily programs. Let’s Talk About is to provide our local community the opportunity to discuss the things that we don’t usually talk about, and with others who are interested in talking about it too.

How do you find people “on the front lines” for Let’s Talk About?

It’s a community effort. Some approach us and express interest in being part of the forum series, but most are found through our partnerships with organizations and individuals throughout the Sacramento community.
