This series is a voluntary learning experience open to our Volunteers and Summer Leadership Alumni. The groups will be facilitated with group norms and a moderator. The books and documentaries we will explore may contain themes and content that could be sensitive or uncomfortable to some. Please know that there is no obligation to participate and at any point in the process, you can leave the book, documentary, or discussion group without judgment or consequence.
