Why Language Matters: A Community Conversation
May 22, 2022 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm
On Sunday, May 22, 2022 at 4:00 pm the Gloucester400+ Anniversary’s Diversity & Equity Committee presents Why Language Matters: A Community Conversation at Movement Arts Gloucester, MA (MAGMA).
The community gathering will explore the Gloucester 400+ Anniversary and its mission of promoting cultural, social, ethnic and economic diversity. Formed in the Fall of 2021, the mission of the Diversity & Equity Committee is to promote a truthful and inclusive history of Gloucester. The committee exists to help anyone interested in marking Gloucester’s 400+ Anniversary do so with intention and equity.
The committee will share their framework, specifically focusing on language use as we talk about history, our future, and why it matters. This presentation will be followed by a conversation facilitated by Gloucester Conversations to surface experiences, ideas, and insights that will contribute to a felt sense of equity among all the people who have been part of the land and community of Gloucester.
The full framework is attached to this email, available for download at www.gloucesterma400.org, and printed copies will be available at the event. The event is free and open to the public but space is limited and registration is required.
