Human Library: Unjudge Someone
Human Library Event
The Human Library™ works to create a safe framework for personal conversations that can help to challenge prejudice, aim to reduce discrimination, prevent conflicts and contribute to greater human cohesion across social, religious and ethnic divisions.
The event is for creating a special dialogue, where taboo topics can be discussed openly and without condemnation. A place where people who would otherwise never talk find room for conversation. We select individuals, human "books" with the interest and ability to share their experiences with prejudice and stereotypes. At this event, "readers" will have 30 minutes to ask questions and get to know the person beyond the labels.
Books will be on loan at The Owyhee in downtown Boise, on Friday, March 27 & Saturday, March 28th.
