Wage inequity - "Community in Conversation" January 28
Updated On: Jan 08, 2020
In an age of underemployment and ever-increasing wage disparity, who has the power to choose their work? A community conversation is scheduled for January 28, 6:45 p.m., at the McLean County Museum of History, 200 N. Main Street, downtown Bloomington - Free!
Inspired by the McLean County Museum of History’s newest exhibit, Challenges, Choices, and Change: A Community in Conflict, the Museum in partnership with Not In Our Town (NIOT), Heartland Community College, YWCA McLean County, and other local organizations (Bloomington & Normal Trades & Labor Assembly, Dreams Are Possible, Illinois Partners for Human Service, Laborers International Union of North America Local 362, and more) will present the dialogue-based program series, A Community in Conversation, from January to April 2020. These monthly opportunities for community conversation will highlight the historic and modern significance of four questions featured in the exhibit—asking always, who has the power?
Each program will include a brief introduction to relevant local stories featured in the new exhibit, followed by small group discussion exploring the chosen theme. All ages are encouraged to participate in any or all of the planned discussions.
This program will take place in the Governor Fifer Courtroom at the McLean County Museum of History, 200 N. Main St., Bloomington. Light refreshments will be provided.
Online registration is encouraged, but not required.
