Reading for Change Kickoff Event

Thursday September 23

6:00pm-7:00pm

Online event—check description for link!

The Reading for Change project invites GCC students, staff, faculty, and members of the Greenfield community to share the experience of intellectual exploration and community building through reading, discussing and engaging with a common text.

This fall we are reading The War for Kindness: Building Empathy in a Fractured World by Jamil Zaki. In this groundbreaking book, Zaki describes research-informed strategies for increasing kindness and empathy in a world characterized by racial inequality, political polarization and decreasing trust in social institutions.

Please join us for a virtual kickoff event that will include introductions, an overview of the project, and a community building exercise! It will be helpful, though not necessary, to have read through the first three chapters The War for Kindness prior to the event.
