Mass Incarceration: A WeListen Staff Discussion

WeListen January 2021 WeListen January 2021
WeListen January 2021
This WeListen session is open to all UM staff members, and is part of the 'Just Community: A Reading and Action Program' series within LSA DEI.

All voices and views are welcome and the Zoom link for this event will be shared once you've RSVP'd.

RSVP here: http://bit.ly/WLJanuary21

We will discuss Mass Incarceration in the United States-it's history and present day impact. Participants will receive a content presentation to review in advance of the virtual session, and the majority of our time will be spent in small group discussion.

Our aim is to bring liberals, conservatives, libertarians- everyone across the political spectrum- together for constructive conversation. The goal of WeListen discussions is not to debate or argue, but to understand the views and values of others and to learn from their perspectives. The session will begin with a brief content presentation to provide a basic understanding of the topic. No specific level of knowledge is required to participate in WeListen discussions.

By participating in WeListen sessions, staff members will:
- Expand understanding of a prominent political topic
- Practice discussing difficult topics with others,
- Gain openness to new ideas and perspectives,
- Learn to productively challenge an idea, and
- Form a sense of community among fellow staff members.

This event is co-sponsored by the WeListen Staff Series planning committee with members from the Ginsberg Center, the International Institute, LSA Psychology and Michigan Medicine, and the LSA DEI Office.
