Event: A Conversation about Political Correctness

On April 23, Team Westport and The Westport Library will host our next installment of our Conversation series, in which we have open, respectful discussions about matters of diversity, civil liberties, and social issues that our affect our community.

During this conversation we’ll explore the following questions: How did civil discourse become associated with political correctness? What does it mean to be “politically correct” and why does it carry a negative connotation? Who decides what is hateful or unacceptable speech? TEAM Westport invites you to join the dialogue to continue the effort to foster understanding and greater trust regarding complex multicultural issues in our community. Reverend Alison Patton, pastor of Saugatuck Congregational Church, will moderate the discussion

 

WHEN: Sunday, April 23, 2017, 3-4:30pm

WHERE: The Westport Library, 20 Jesup Road, Westport, CT 06880
