Event Details

Portland Public Library's Choose Civility Initiative and the Institute for Civic Leadership invite you to participate in a world-cafe style event on the theme of "Welcoming : Energizing Community."  Together we will examine how "welcoming" serves as a civic value and an individual and organizational practice.  When do you feel most welcome to participate in your community?  What happens if you feel unwelcome? How do you actively welcome others? Are there ways our public process or institutions could be more welcoming?  How and why does welcoming matter? 

A reception and opportunity to create action groups will follow (from 6pm - 7pm).

RSVPs appreciated but not required.

This event is made possibly with the support of the Lerner Foundation.
