Program Description

Event Details

All of us have a story to tell, and we’d like to hear yours! Join us for this virtual gathering to hear and share stories related to racial equity. Please bring your experiences and insights, listening ears, and an open mind and heart.  

Your library system wants to provide community engagement and education that advances equity and connects people to opportunities to make a difference. You’ll have two options to make your story part of something bigger.

You can share your story with the Library for a new HCLS collection on local racial experiences. You also can share your stories and experiences with the Howard County Council’s Racial Equity Task Force. These stories will be official testimony, which the Task Force will consider as they recommend legislation to advance equity to the County Council. 

Please note: This is not a County Racial Equity Task Force event, though some Task Force members may attend as participants. The same event is being offered Saturday February 20 at 1pm to increase community access; please pick one session to attend. 

Please register with an email address to receive an immediate registration confirmation with a link to join the class/event. This email will also contain the dial-in information if you wish to participate by telephone.
