Pasadena, CA — The public is invited to attend a free, three-part workshop-discussion series on "Cultural Competency" sponsored by the Pasadena Human Relations Commission. All workshops will be held from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. on Saturdays—May 25, June 22 and July 20—in the Pasadena City Council Chamber at City Hall, 100 N. Garfield Avenue, Second Floor.
The first workshop was May 25. The topic was "Access Denied: Technology Bias."
How important is the internet in the United States today? Does the inability to access the internet limit individuals' ability to grow? How does this affect Pasadena?
The next workshops are:
Workshop 2, June 22, "Who am I? Breaking Through Prejudice by Understanding Ourselves."
Why do we judge others? Why are we uncomfortable around certain groups of people?
Workshop 3, July 20, "Reintegration: Problems Faced by Ex-cons Trying to Find Housing After Released From Prison."
If you can't go home where do you go? Why is so difficult for ex-cons to find housing? How does this affect a community?
