POCATELLO – Idaho State University’s Global Pocatello Association in collaboration with 2Great4Hate and Pocatello NAACP will host a World Café on Sept. 25 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. in the Pond Student Union Bengal Café.
The main question that will be discussed in small groups throughout the night is “What is the Idaho Way?” Other questions that will be addressed include what is assimilation, what is its cost and how does the “Idaho Way” both positively and negatively affect diversity in our communities?
Other questions that will be addressed include what is assimilation, what is its cost and how can we as community members make Pocatello a more welcoming town to all of its residents?
Through these roundtable discussions, participants will have the opportunity to participate in collaborative dialogue, engage actively with other participants and create constructive possibilities for action.
“The questions that World Café events focus on are usually ones that matter to every community member regardless of their affiliations, beliefs, or identities,” said Noran Amin, an organizer of this event. “They are questions that unite people and bring them together to discuss possibilities of improving the community they live in.”
This event is free and open to the public. Snacks will be provided.
