Waking up White by Debby Irving Book Club @ Human Rights Educational Institute
Jul 20 @ 5:15 pm

Irving tells the story of her 25 years sensing racial tension in personal and professional relationships, and her worries as a colleague and neighbor that she would offend those she wanted to befriend. As an arts administrator she did not understand why her diversity efforts lacked traction, and as a teacher she found her best efforts to reach out to students and families of color were missing something. After a revelatory moment in 2009, Irving launched an adventure of discovery and insight that would drastically shift her world view. Irving shares both the good and the cringe-worthy moments of her story.

Tribe by Sebastian Junger Book Club @ Human Rights Educational Institute
Sep 19 @ 5:15 pm

Junger combines history, psychology, and anthropology as he explores what tribal societies can teach us about loyalty, belonging, and humanity’s eternal quest to find meaning. He explains the irony that war feels better than peace, that adversity can turn into a blessing, and that disasters are more often more fondly remembered than the good moments in life. Tribe explains why humans are stronger when we come together and how we can achieve that in our presently divided world.

Sep 21 @ 5:30 pm – 8:30 pm

This event promises to be a fun auction and dinner evening with some great auction items and terrific company.

HCC was approved in early September of 2017. Since then our team has been working hard in areas of fundraising, finalizing a site and upcoming contracts related to operations.

Our last hurdle is the funding needed to ensure a smooth opening in September of 2019. We are excited to have everything in place for this auction to be a huge success.
