On August 18th we gathered at the HERE Rehearsal Space and generated a list of topics in relation to Equality and how it fits into our concept of the American Dream.  The conversation allowed us to express our multiple perspectives on the meaning of Equality and how the idea translates to our every day lives.  Thank you to all who attended and the thoughts you shared.

Equality Think Tank Topics Generated:

-Equalizing Achievement From Different Starting Lines.

-Is Equality Really a US American tenant?  Isn’t the American dream about not being equal – about having more than others?  Are we talking about equality as equal opportunity at the starting gate or giving people the means to potentially attain equality at the “finish” line?   CAPITALISM!!??

-How do we determine when equality is reached?

-What is Equality?

-Equal Access – Is there still a public common?  As there was for our parents.

-Equality in terms of Education

-Equality of Heritage

-“It’s wrong that guy’s rich and I’m suffering”

-Equal opportunity and Equality before the law.  But the dark side of meritocracy is difference

-Enforced equality versus an Instinctual equality (Real)

-Is it OK to be different

-Separate but Equal
