Conversation on Justice

Conversation on Justice

Join the Peace and Justice Institute annually in January for our Conversation on Justice.

Covering many of today's hot-button issues - ranging from violence, immigration and economic inequality to food insecurity, race and sexual orientation - each event, through the power of transformative stories, facilitated discussions, award-winning films, art projects and more, delves into critical conversations whose goal is to promote a culture of peace and understanding and mend the fabric of our humanity.

The Conversation on Justice is sponsored by the Peace and Justice Institute with funding support from Student Development.

 
Orlando Speaks

Orlando Speaks:

Community Conversations

Orlando Speaks was established to create a safe space for dialogue where authentic voices come together to share stories, fears, and concerns, with an eye toward finding common ground among two groups that often struggle together - police and citizens. We now offer "Our Community Speaks", which is a series of interactive workshops that utilizes innovative communication strategies to foster ongoing citizen engagement and conversation between residents, the City and the local Police Department to better serve and celebrate the community's diversity. Workshops are custom designed so as to be timely and meet local community needs.
