    The Racial Generation Gap: What does it mean for Whatcom County, what does it mean for democracy?

    THE TOPIC: The US Census Bureau projects that by 2033 seniors will outnumber youth and by 2044 the majority of our citizens will be people of color. What are the potential consequences of these demographic changes for you, our community and our country?

    THE AGENDA:
    Kirsten Barron will explain why the League has chosen this topic, an explanation of what the racial generation gap means, information on changing demographic trends both nationally and in Whatcom County and lessons learned from other communities.

    Promoted by questions from the facilitator Mauri Ingram, fishbowl panel participants will engage in an open and candid conversation among themselves about opportunities the racial generation gap presents for our community, what is happening currently and what we as individuals and as a community can do to proactively bridge the gap. This organic style of conversation will allow each panelist the opportunity to share his/her thoughts, ask questions of each other and discuss ideas and opportunities that might not have been considered before.
