The Sonoma County Library continues its Together at the Table project series hosting two events in August focused on Income Inequality, the sixth and final topic of this year-long grant-funded project. Together at the Table, whose title derives from a line in Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” speech, creates opportunities for community members to learn, discuss, and become civically engaged in relevant topics heard in our local newspapers, the news, and in other media daily.
The Income Inequality events include a panel of experts from local agencies and organizations who will share the work they are doing to bring awareness and support to the issues surrounding income inequality in Sonoma County. Join us on Wednesday, August 8th at 6:30pm at the Northwest Regional Library, and Wednesday, August 15th at 6:30pm at the Healdsburg Regional Library. Income Inequality partners include the California Labor Commission, North Bay Jobs with Justice, the Sonoma County Economic Development Board, and the Sonoma County Workforce Investment Board.
In addition to this project’s events, each Library branch has Together at the Table Learning Spaces where patrons can discover and check out materials on the topics discussed during the year. The six topics addressed in the 2017-18 grant period are Climate Change, Immigration, Blackness in America, Women’s Rights, LGBTQI, and Income Inequality.
All Together at the Table events are free and open to all.
