Tolerance Talks Reading Group

The Tolerance Talks reading group at Notre Dame College of Ohio is dedicated to the study of human rights and tolerance as well as roadblocks to understanding. Current and historical conditions that support or erode freedoms of groups and individuals will be explored. Resources of the Tolerance Resource Center open doors to mutual understanding and respect.

This group is interdisciplinary and will explore issues from historical, psychological, spiritual, sociological, cultural, and other perspectives. Planned readings are a springboard to discussion and reflection.

The theme for Fall 2008 is Native American issues
of the past, present, and future.
