About our Global Challenges & Local Impacts discussion series:
This series creates conversations in communities that have not traditionally hosted thoughtful discussions on international peace and human rights. To ensure that we cultivate a positive and meaningful discussion within each of these communities, we strive to work with a local partnering organization to help represent the voice and unique perspective of their community. By bringing international awareness and a focus on human rights to communities that have not traditionally been engaged on these issues, we hope to empower them to interact and create change within their community – and the larger world.
