Day of Dialogue

December 10, 2021

Around 30 South High students got a chance to gather on Friday to talk openly and honesty during a Day of Dialogue.
The event allows students and staff to gather at the nearby Pine Knolls Alliance Church community space, separate into small groups, and talk about issues in culture throughout the day.
Student facilitators trained in restorative practices guided these talks. Each facilitator hosted roughly six to eight other students in restorative circles around the topic of hate speech. Students were given the opportunity to speak about how they and others have been affected by hate speech. The day’s mission was to increase awareness and a stronger community stance against hate speech through open and effective communication.
The ideals of Restorative Practices guided these discussions. These practices include talking in small groups, talking pieces that focus on the speaker, and making sure everyone has a chance to speak.
