Human Library @ WFL

 

Human Library @ WFL Event: November 6

 

The Human Library event aims to create dialogue and understanding between people. Individuals who have experienced discrimination volunteer as human “books” and participants at the event can “read” the book–meaning have a one-on-one conversation to hear the book’s experiences centered around discrimination. Through conversation and open dialogue, we want to break down barriers and stereotypes of all kinds.

In preparation for the fall event, WFL is seeking adults who are interested in applying to become a book in our Human Library. In a nutshell, Human Library Books are people that represent a group in the community that is exposed to stigma, stereotyping or prejudices based on occupation, ethnicity, religious belief, gender, cultural background, health, social status, lifestyle or disability.
