Let’s Talk! Building a More Inclusive Piedmont Through Deliberative Dialogue,” a two-part workshop and hosted lunch* designed to help us engage in an enriching community dialogue to listen, learn, and understand one another better, respectfully. The workshops are a collaborative effort presented by the Piedmont Appreciating Diversity Committee (PADC), PUSD, and the City of Piedmont with support from the Piedmont Education Fund. They will be led by Sara Wicht, a developer of Southern Poverty Law Center’s “Teaching Tolerance” curriculum and trainer used by Piedmont schools.
