Continuing Conversations

Not In Our Town Princeton hosts a monthly gathering at the Princeton Public Library entitled, “Continuing Conversations on Race & White Privilege.”

Our statement of intent with regards to these gatherings is as follows:

“Our priority is to create a safe and welcoming atmosphere in which our African American sisters and brothers and other people of color will feel respected and have their stories listened to and really heard.  We are motivated to explore our own privilege and biases and to continue to learn and grow by hearing each other’s stories, so that we can best make a difference.”

We welcome anyone who is committed to working to dismantle racism and build an inclusive community to join us on the first Monday of every month, at 7pm, on the third floor of the Princeton Public Library. Additional information will be posted to our Event Calendar as appropriate. An orientation will be at 6:45 p.m.
