Join the Progressive Diners
for as we explore the topic Perceptual Segregation with our guest speaker James McDay. James is working to raise awareness about issues of diversity in Kootenai County. He hopes to foster inclusion for minority groups who feel unwelcome in our seemingly homogenous community. As James explains, the issue of perceptual segregation concerns how insiders and outsiders perceive discrimination differently. Regardless of your genetics or background, we are all either insiders or outsiders depending on the makeup of the group and our perceived place in it. How we perceive our place has profound implications both legally and culturally. To help clarify this complex issue, James will show a short video. The video will help solidify this important concept and show us why it should addressed. Please join this enlightening conversation about this important topic.
