Lenny Avery to speak to ALL on Monday

ALPENA — Lenny Avery is giving a presentation to the Association of Lifelong Learners at 1 p.m. on Monday at M. Briggs Center at ACC.

His topic is “I See You: Care, Intentionality, and Unveiling Privilege.”

In the description, he writes, “In our shared journey of continual learning, it’s time to gather with intentionality and compassion under the theme ‘ICU ­– I See You.’ Join us for an exploration that transcends the ordinary, focusing on caring for each other and unveiling the nuances of privilege that often escape our notice. Imagine a world where our vision is not just about sight but about truly seeing one another. Through this presentation, we’ll weave a narrative of intentional care, urging us all to extend our understanding to those who might be marginalized in our communities. ‘I See You’ goes beyond mere observation; it’s an intentional act of empathy and recognition. We’ll navigate stories that highlight the need for intentional care, offering insights into the experiences of those often on the periphery of our collective vision.”

Avery is currently serving as the economic development coordinator with Target Alpena Development Corporation.
