Civil Discourse Event Series: Human Dignity for All Panel Discussion

Civil Discourse Event Series: Human Dignity for All Panel Discussion

Join us for a stimulating event series focused on Civil Discourse, featuring a panel discussion on human dignity, an art exhibition of work by photographer Stevan Maxwell, an exploration of civil discourse with Dr. Maureen Neal, and a thoughtful discussion about compassionate communicate with local teacher Kelly Hass.

Human Dignity for All Panel Discussion:

Listen, ask, and learn about the homeless experience from those who have lived it. This panel discussion is moderated by members of Grand Valley Peace & Justice.

The panel includes:

  • A singer/songwriter who has written songs about meeting and helping the homeless in the community 
  • A former Colorado legislator who found himself homeless
  • Stories from individuals who have been or very nearly were homeless

Statement from Grand Valley Peace & Justice:

"We honor each one present on the 17th and ask that you come by early to see the expanded exhibit in the Community Room from 10 a.m. to 6:30 p.m., whre you can hear audio interviews from homeless people who were brave enough to record their stories. Our Faces and Voices docents will be on hand all day to answer questions. The more we know, the better we can treat one another with human dignity."
