Community Conversations: Is discrimination on the basis of educational status dividing our country?

May 02, 2021 7:00PM


Online via the Center For Small Town Jewish Life


Each year, Community Conversations brings together Waterville faith and community institutions with Colby faculty and students to consider major issues of common concern.

This spring, we’ll gather for a virtual evening and hear from Anosacha Peete-Meyers ’23, Rabbi David Freidenreich, Director of Jewish Studies at Colby, and Pastor Jamie Dickson of Kingdom Life Church in Oakland, Maine. They will explore the question:

Is discrimination on the basis of educational status dividing our country?

After hearing from our panelists, we’ll break into small groups to discuss these questions: Can this rift be bridged? If so, how can we achieve greater equity in power, influence, and status while still maintaining the unique value of higher education? Finally, how does this rift specifically impact Waterville and central Maine?

It’s sure to be a rich and meaningful evening of discussion—join us!
