Different Circles, Same City. Which Goshen are you? • April 23, 2020 • 6–8 p.m. • Shanklin Park, Schrock Pavilion
Summary: There are multiple, overlapping communities in Goshen – it could be said that there are different “Goshens”. Your circles may be defined by who you hang out with, where you eat and shop, how you vote, where (or if) you worship, what time you’re on the street, and more. These different Goshens offer important and healthy community for us. When we can reach out and build bridges across circles, our community is stronger. This conversation will focus on how the Goshen community can work to connect across these cultural differences and practical barriers. Participants will think together, creatively, to innovate ideas around how to make Goshen a family where everyone belongs.

About the Growing Goshen Together Conversation Series
The Goshen Community Relations Commission (CRC) and Goshen Community Schools (GCS) began conversations in 2018 to brainstorm possibilities toward building bridges between diverse groups in the Goshen community. Recognizing diversity of all kinds throughout the city, they saw an opportunity for promoting tolerance, understanding and gratitude for all people. This led to a pilot community conversation, Growing Goshen Together, on April 25, 2019, held at Goshen High School. Responses from that event called for more conversations. Through continued conversations about the issues facing the Goshen community, CRC and GCS hope to continue fostering relationships throughout the Goshen community.
