Ypsilanti District Library To Host Anti-Racism Virtual Town Hall

Jul 31, 2020

The Ypsilanti District Library will host a virtual anti-racism town hall for families this Saturday.  

Through a zoom meeting, local caregivers and educators will provide families with resources, such as books, they can use to navigate conversations about anti-racism at home.  Jodi Krahnke is the head of youth services at the Ypsilanti District Library.

Jodi Krahnke: We hope it gives people tools to think more critically.  To evaluate what they’re seeing on TV or in the media, what they’re reading in a book.

The zoom meeting will take place from 2 pm – 3:30 pm.  For details on how to participate in the meeting, visit the Ypsilanti District Library’s website.
