How to Participate

Our Partners

Civity collaborated on the design and implementation of the library's first two Human Library trainings and events. Civity helps community leaders strategically transform their communities to understand and celebrate differences - across race, class, culture, and politics.

Human Library was developed in Copenhagen in the spring of 2000 as part of an anti-violence movement. The Human Library is now international, part of a worldwide movement for social change.
