The East Side Freedom Library invites you to The First Listening Session with the Saint Paul Almanac on Wednesday, October 11, 5:30 to 8:30pm.
How do we deepen our practice of bringing people, stories, organizations, businesses, writers, and artists together in Saint Paul to effect positive change in our city?
Saint Paul Almanac is a literary-centered arts organization. We share stories across cultures and cultivate dialogue to promote understanding, relationships, and collaborative action. The Saint Paul Almanac is holding Listening Sessions with community members, long-term partnering organizations, and possible new partnering organizations. We want to learn what works with our community editor process and books and what doesn’t. Discussions will be facilitated by circle keeper Raj Sethuraju.
Dinner will be served.
Facilitator Raj Sethuraju works and volunteers with various Restorative Justice nonprofit organizations in the Twin Cities in Minnesota. He has presented to Restorative Justice groups in prisons, is a trainer for the MNCOSA program run by the Minnesota Department of Corrections, and is involved in training volunteers for other non-profit community Restorative Justice organizations. His passion for restorative justice using the circle process is infectious and his engaging presentations and workshops are inclusive and humanizing.
