Community Book Read: White Fragility
The Lexington Community Coalition invites you to join us as we learn how we can work together to dismantle prejudice and racism. We look forward to sharing books, films, and conversations throughout the year. Our events will focus on Robin DiAngelo’s book White Fragility. We will host at least three large events and offer opportunities for small group discussions. We also provide other resources that might be of interest. We hope to see and talk with you about this important topic!

Small Group Discussions
In the upcoming months, the Lexington Community Coalition will be organizing small group book discussions to take place this winter. As we work on building our small groups to be responsive to community needs, it would be helpful if you would provide us with some input. Please complete our short survey!
Here are a few resources to start. Please check back — we will add more resources over time!
