RACE exhibit seeks volunteers — a lot of them

By Kelley Luckstein

Kay Hocker is looking for volunteers — about 90 of them. The executive director of the Diversity Council is lining up people to be youthrace-exhibit discussion facilitators during the Rochester exhibition of "RACE: Are We So Different?"…


The Diversity Council is partnering with Mayo Clinic and the Rochester Public Library to engage the community in the RACE exhibit by offering the discussion groups. Mayo is the main sponsor of the exhibit in Rochester, where it will be free and open to the public at the library from May 17 through Sept. 4.

Hocker needs between 150 and 175 facilitators to run student discussion groups after student classes see the exhibit and watch an accompanying play. So far, about 60 people have applied to be facilitators, and Hocker has verbal agreements from another 20 or so, she said.
