This year's Living Library event will take place all day on Saturday, August 25th 2018. Please join us in furc://livinglibrary for this unique opportunity to learn; to challenge oppression, stereotypes, and prejudice in a safe, respectful atmosphere; and to form friendships based on mutual respect and acceptance! Read on below for more information.
What is the Living Library?
The Living Library is an educational opportunity with an anti-oppression framework. Through open, honest, and respectful dialogue, Living Library aims to challenge all forms of oppression and hate (including, but not limited to: racism, sexism, ableism, heterosexism, cissexism, classism, and religious intolerance). Each year at the Living Library, Furcadians come together to learn about each others' lives and unique experiences. Players volunteer to share their stories and experiences with discrimination, stereotypes, societal attitudes, misconceptions, and more.
Visitors are encouraged to talk to these volunteers, listen to their stories, and ask questions they might otherwise be afraid to ask. We hope that this dialogue will lead to a better understanding of others and, in turn, greater respect for them. We believe that one of the best ways to learn is through open communication!
