Announcing LCDP Sponsored Discussion Group Book Club for 2021: An Exploration of Racism

In 2021, LCDP will host a monthly book/film/life discussion group for interested members and others about racism – what is it, how does it affect everything, how can we become antiracists. The sessions will be held on the fourth Monday of every month from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m. over Zoom until we are able to safely meet in person again. In addition to these monthly meetings, we’ll also encourage participants to attend other local programming around this topic.

January’s book is “White Fragility: Why it’s so hard to talk to white people about racism” by Robin DiAngelo. The book is available as an e- or audio-book from Overdrive, Wisconsin’s digital public library, from the Winding Rivers Library System, or on order through book sellers like Pearl Street Books. We will also provide links for participants to view a fall 2020 local forum on the topic to be included in our January 25 discussion.

To participate, please register at this link. More details and access information will be forwarded to you.

We encourage all LCDP members to attend the La Crosse Martin Luther King, Jr. celebration which will be held on Monday, January 18 and will be online. The guest speaker will be the Rev. Dr. William J. Barber II.

Please consider joining us in 2021 on this important journey.
