Consider reading the book See Poverty, Be the Difference by Dr. Donna Beegle and joining the Diversity Committee for a book discussion group during winter quarter.
This book provides a foundation for understanding poverty and addressing its impact. We will meet three times during the quarter to discuss the book and the impact of poverty on our students.
Credit is available for both faculty and classified staff for participating in the discussion groups. Faculty should register through the TLC; classified staff can register at the first meeting. Copies of the book are available in the CPTC library and via the TLC. You may also purchase a copy from Dr. Beegle's website: https://combarriers.com/node/

If you have questions about the book or the discussion group, please contact Valerie Sundby-Thorp at firstname.lastname@example.org or (253) 589-5767. I hope to see many of you there!
Even if you haven’t had a chance to finish the chapter, I encourage you to join us for the discussion.
I hope to see many of you next week!
