Description:
This organization promotes confronting and understanding your prejudices by creating a system in which participants ("readers") may "check-out" individuals for short face-to-face discussions. These individuals represent the "disabled, the Muslim, the HIV infected or the refugee," and others. The site provides a history of the organization (started by the Stop the Violence group in Denmark), details for organizers and potential "living books," and an events list.
