Unjudge Someone: A Human Library Program

October 1, 2022 @ 12:00 pm – 4:00 pm America/New York Timezone
Gwinnett County Public Library
1210 Pounds Rd SW, Lilburn, GA 30047

Human Library “books” are people who have agreed to make themselves available for discussion about stigmatized experiences. The Human Library project puts a face on the headlines, allowing participants to begin to understand the experience of those who’ve been identified as “other.” All human “books” go through training to ensure a safe space is maintained. The program allows people who may otherwise never talk to one another to engage
in conversation.
The day will begin with a talk by Shaun Smith the Founder, President, and CEO of BlackPush . Following his discussion, attendees will
sign up for 30-minute conversations with Human Library books.
