Letters, May 14
Local dialogue planned
On May 5, the Mail Tribune published an editorial by its publisher, Steven Saslow, who called for a local dialogue addressing the issue of “murder in the name of hate ...” Saslow asked, “What would happen if that violence actually happened in our community?” He suggested a “local call to action to protect ourselves and our community.”
My wife and I are responding. On May 18 at 9:30 a.m, at Kids Unlimited in downtown Medford, we are facilitating a 2.5-hour workshop on “How to Talk to Your Kids About Race in America.”
We believe there’s power in reducing fear of “others” in our community and state. We believe parents and teachers can do a better job of equipping youth to understand our multicultural American society when they have practical tools and resources.
