In this new ongoing program, we will use expert guidance in an effort to raise our understanding so that we can participate with confidence in such important work.  This session, we look at the fraught concept of civility – whether we must always be polite in dealing with society’s oppressive forces – and the related phenomenon of respectability politics, in which the legitimate concerns of marginalized folks are disregarded if they do not conform with the dominant society’s vision of appropriate conduct.  You are welcome to attend as many or as few of these events as you wish, but you will gain the most from consistent attendance.  To register, please visit https://bit.ly/pyequity.  Hosted by Penn Yan Public Library.
