In March, Goffstown, neighborhoods received neo-Nazi propaganda in their driveways. Because of that incident, the Goffstown Public Library has developed “One Goffstown” a series of discussions for teens and adults with the goal of encouraging communication and becoming a more welcoming, accepting community for everyone.
Five different sessions will be held online in June, July, and August, all on Thursday evenings at 6:30 p.m. and open to the public. The Human Library event on Sunday, August 13 will be held in person.
June 8 – What are Hate Crimes and Hate Speech? With Chief Eric Sereno, Goffstown Police Department; Tim DeMann, FBI; Seth Aframe, US Attorney’s Office; and Sean Locke, NH Attorney General’s Office
June 29 – What is Implicit Bias? With James McKim, Organizational Ignition
July 13 – What is Bullying? With Dr. Kate Murphy, Plymouth State University
