Quincy community members work to fight racism

The Quincy Human Rights Commission will once again offer a round of study circles, starting the week of April 7th. The study circle program gives participants a chance to explore the different aspects of racism. The discussions help members share concerns and work toward taking action to address and eliminate racism in the community. Saturday, the organization held an informational session for those interesting in participating in a study circle.

" The conversation is ongoing. We're never going to solve this problem through one process and it takes the input and different experiences of a great variety of people," says program coordinator for the study circle program, Melissa Holden.

The study circles start the week of April 7th. It's a six week session. If you're interested in participating in this free event, contact, Melissa Holden at (217) 221-9922 or email
