Diverse Groups
Oct 17 @ 6:30 pm – 8:15 pm

People tend to clump together in groups of similar backgrounds. So much of our lives are spent with people that look like us, think like us, are generally the same age as us and usually they agree with us. As a result, some people never get the opportunity to learn from other cultures and perspectives. Diverse Groups wants to change all that. We want to see people from all backgrounds making friends, sharing perspectives, and learning each other’s stories. We believe that if our community can replace stereotypes with real names, faces and stories, we will create a better place to live. We believe that this change starts with honest conversations: the kind of conversations where we admit that sometimes we put each other in a box without knowing enough. We believe that striving to understand each other through honest conversations can be the beginning of something amazing in our city, our neighborhoods, and our lives. Diverse Groups facilitates these kinds of conversations between people from various backgrounds. We create an environment where people can ask honest questions and listen to honest answers. Our groups consist of people from various backgrounds. Each group is a 90-minute event and has a specific discussion topic and a moderator.
