There is not just one good reason, but many very good reasons to become part of this global movement and start hosting and presenting Human Libraries in your community.
Let’s start with the simple stuff. This concept works. The Human Library™ actually does what it says it will do and what it was designed to do. It helps build understanding for diversity by providing a framework for real conversations about important issues.
Open and honest conversations that can lead to greater acceptance, tolerance and social cohesion in the community.
Real people in real conversations within a framework setup to help facilitate and accommodate the process.
Because this is an innovative approach to challenging stigma, stereotypes and prejudices through a non confrontational and friendly conversation.
To give a voice to groups in the community that are stigmatized and to help bring about platforms that support a greater understanding of diversity and social cohesion.
