Mission Statement

Intersection’s purpose is to engage and educate communities through social contact and raise awareness of social issues. Our projects will encourage dialogue that inspires cooperation and community cohesion.

Description

Intersection's primary program is the Chicago chapter of Human Library. A Human Library is an event that aims to create dialogue and understanding between people. Individuals volunteer as human 'books’ and participants in the event can 'read’ the book by having a one on one conversation to share in a dialogue about that individual’s experience. Books are volunteers from all walks of life who have experienced discrimination or adversity based on race, religion, sexual preference, class, gender identity, sex, age, lifestyle choices, disability, and other aspects of their life. The Human Library provides the opportunity for the community to share and understand the experiences of others in their community.
