Princeton Diversity Discussions in Boston
You are invited to join us at our fourth annual joint event shared between the Harvard Kennedy School Women's Network and Princeton Diversity Discussions! Princeton Diversity Discussions is our ongoing series of friendly and inclusive gatherings for discussing race-related issues, supported by the Association of Black Princeton Alumni (ABPA), Association of Latino Princeton Alumni (ALPA), Asian American Alumni Association of Princeton (A4P), Princeton Association of New England (PANE), Princeton Association of Delaware, Princeton Association of New York City (PANYC), Princeton Club of Washington (PCW), Princeton Area Alumni Association (PA3), Princeton Club of San Diego (PCSD), Princeton Club of Northern California (PCNC), Princeton Club of Chicago (PCC), and Terrace. Open to *everyone* (affiliated and not with Princeton) that would like to talk about race, racism, and racial justice, we invite alumni, students, staff, family, friends, and everyone you think is groovy to join us. For now, we are meeting digitally, and **ALL** of our online gatherings are open to EVERYONE, whether or not you live in the city that’s hosting. Please attend as many of our digital meetings as you’d like!

For all of our gatherings, we provide a few topics that might be discussed, but reading the links is not required, as we summarize issues before we launch into discussion of them. That said, many people enjoy the short online articles we send, remarking, "I really like the links. Reminds me of Princeton precepts!"
Our January discussion topics may include:
* Suggested by Don Brown '73: The Census Predicament: Counting Americans by Race, https://www.wsj.com/articles/the-predicament-of-counting-americans-by-race-11606492632?st=f1vybc80xbhdx3p&reflink=article_email_share
* Suggested by Johnny Korn: Dr. Susan Moore: Black Physician Who Said She Was Mistreated Dies of COVID-19, https://heavy.com/news/dr-susan-moore-indiana-covid-death-facebook-video/
* Suggested by Dave Marshak '66: Contra Costa declares racism a public health crisis, OKs equity office, https://www.eastbaytimes.com/2020/11/12/contra-costa-county-declares-racism-a-public-health-crisis-establishes-equity-office
* Whatever is on your mind!
* NOTE: Please send in links that you'd like to have us discuss! The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, and other sites put monthly limits on folk that haven't paid money to subscribe, so we do our best to avoid those links and other firewall sites when we can.
Princeton Diversity Discussions has won the Innovation Award for the Princeton Association of New England and a grant for the Princeton Club of San Diego from the Committee on Regional Associations of Princeton University. So far, we have teamed up with the Duke Black Alumni Association, Harvard Women in Design, and Harvard Kennedy School's Women's Network to co-host discussions, and we are open to additional organizational collaborations. To attend and participate in Princeton Diversity Discussions is free.
