The Greensboro History Museum and the UNCG Department of Communication Studies continue their online Democracy Tables series with “Housing and Equity” from 11 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. this Saturday, March 27. There will also be opportunities to participate in this conversation from 6 to 7:15 p.m., on Wednesday, March 31, and from 11 a.m. to 12:15 p.m., on Monday, April 5. The conversations are free and open to all. For more information and registration, visit this link.
Since fall 2020, more than 160 people from across Greensboro have come together online to discuss topics like voting and police, community and justice in small-group Democracy Table conversations. The “Housing and Equity” series explores affordability, evictions, safety, the right to housing, and more. Residents are invited to join one of the three Democracy Table conversations on Zoom to discuss personal experiences, what housing means to them, and what people can do to make change in this area.
Democracy Tables are designed to promote civic engagement and build democracy in an informal setting while supporting academic research. UNCG students will observe and take notes on general themes and questions that arise during the Democracy Table conversations. Their goal is to learn more about how unidentified people talk about and participate in building democracy.
Questions that come up during the conversation sessions will find answers from community experts at a special follow-up session, “Democracy Tables: You Asked!” at 3 p.m., Saturday, April 10. The program will stream live on the Greensboro History Museum Facebook page.
