This monthly community discussion series creates conversations based in international peace and human rights, joining together both local experts and members of the community for a dialogue about the global issues that are challenging our society. With this series, we strive to create a global consciousness in Pittsburgh by building bridges between relevant, important issues that affect us here in the city, as well as the world at large. By bringing international awareness and a focus on human rights to a public forum, we hope to empower members of the community to interact and create change within their community – and the world.
As of January 2013, we are very pleased to announce that we are holding each of these discussions in the Atrium of the Union Project in East Liberty (801 N. Negley Ave. – entrance on Stanton Ave.). Each discussion takes place from 6:00-8:00 PM, and includes a moderated discussion period with the panelists, as well as a Q&A section with the audience members.
