From date: 
Thu, 05/18/2017 - 7:00pm

Join the Winchester Multicultural Network, the Board of Selectmen and the School Committee on Thursday, May 18 from 7-9pm at the Sanborn House Historical and Cultural Center (15 High St., Winchester) for the town’s third Civic Gathering.

Groups of people who live and/or work in Winchester have addressed concerns about intolerance, inequity and divisiveness through various initiatives, promoting: active bystander/upstander training; intergenerational dialogues; civic education; awareness of Winchester’s Human Rights Statement and core values; collaboration between town organizations; diversity among staff and multicultural professional development in our schools; a community culture that is welcoming; dialogues across political differences; and interfaith collaborations to support refugees.

On May 18, attendees will learn about these and other efforts where community members will share information about the activities and plans of the working groups, with the goal of maximizing impact through awareness and collaboration.
