Event Description

Join us for an exciting in-person community conversation, it is the first facilitation product developed by the the newly established Melton/McAvay Center for Equity and Social Justice Center at Gateway Community College. The event will take place at CT State Community College, Gateway Campus, Church Street, New Haven, CT, USA.

This event will feature the Roll of the Dice Community Conversation Model (ROD). ROD is an interactive training "game" which is designed to strengthen community leaders and professionals ability to understand and work with the causes and effects of racial and economic disproportionality.  The experience brings together readily available quantitative research/statistical measurements in a fun, personal and interactive manner that mobilizes participants to better digest, integrate and apply research and evaluation into their efforts. ROD feels like you are playing a game with the side-benefit that participants learn to use data as tool to promote social justice.
