Tenth-graders at Casco Bay High School are inviting members of the public to a community dialogue on Monday, Jan. 22, that will focus on addressing incidents of bias in schools and the community and on how to reduce such discrimination. The event will run from 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. at Casco Bay High School.

Casco Bay High School sophomores are spearheading the daylong event to initiate their Arc Towards Justice learning expedition. They are inviting educators, parents, students and other community members to participate in small group sessions with them. They want to engage with the larger Portland community to promote a deeper understanding of how to deal with past incidents and prevent them from happening in the future.

Their goal is to help the community better understand the recent rise in discrimination and hate crimes taking place across the nation and in the community, consider ways of making a difference, and plan how to take action.

The hope is to have 30 to 40 adult participants that represent Portland’s diverse community to discuss what the concerns are and what can be done about them. Lunch and babysitting will be provided. Anyone interested in participating is invited to sign up at this link: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLScC_sxY1D64Aq0RHjhCIRtG-hExJQ3OShCF6wBO4jXyJDx8LA/viewform
