Winter DEI Book Club
The Winter DEI Book Club selection is Covering: The Hidden Assault on Our Civil Rights by Kenji Yoshino. Originally published in 2006, Yoshino's argument for why we as individuals in the community need to focus on human rights still resonates today. By sharing his own intimate story of being the child of Asian immigrants and gay, Yoshino takes us through a personal journey to help the reader understand the pain of systemic oppression and the agency we have to create new, better inclusive systems.
Our community discussion of Covering will take place over four sessions. You can read the whole book ahead of the sessions or read it in parts, as each session will focus on a different portion of the book. Slightly different than our Summer DEI Book Club discussions that focused on key quotes or concepts, our Winter Club sessions will focus more on activities to help us grow and learn as a community, using Yoshino's text as inspiration for our exploration.
All sessions will be held over Zoom, from 6:00 - 7:15 p.m. on the following dates:
- Thursday, January 21
- Tuesday, February 9
- Tuesday, February 23
- Tuesday, March 2
