Also Tonight — Social Justice Night

Social Justice Night
Tuesday, June 24 2008
RISD CIT building, Room 103
169 Weybosset Street

(Downtown, not on the main campus. Next to American Apparel, across from the JWU green)

From Luke:

6pm: Socialize, get settled.
7pm: Documentary screening.
7:10-9:30pm: Facilitated discussions and report-backs.
9:30pm: Announcements.

We are going to pick up from last month by showing ‘Violated: Guilty though Proven Innocent‘ A short documentary about sentencing reform produced by the RI Family Life Center (That there were technical difficulties screening at AS220)

Facilitated small group discussions:
Discussion leaders will introduce themselves, audience members choose what they’re interested in. Exact schedule will be finalized based on turnout, something like two 40 minute blocks of four discussions. Each block followed by report-backs to the whole crowd.

Lots of free food, snacks, beverages, coffee, throughout the night.

In having this series of events in a different location every month, we hope to challenge biases and foster connections between varied communities. To help do that we attempt to identify and create dialog about existing discord between communities. This month we are happy to have Peter Hocking from the RISD Office of Public Engagement facilitating a discussion on some of the tensions between college students and other city residents.
