In the wake of the January 2015 terrorist attacks in France, Francois Reyes, then eighteen years old, founded Citizen’s Awakening. A think tank that works to combat extremism and hate, Citizen’s Awakening works to facilitate dialogue around the world among people from different communities and backgrounds.
Reyes will join us for a discussion about how we, as individuals, as a college campus, and as a nation can harness open dialogue as a mechanism to enact real change. Reyes is also working toward launching Citizen’s Awakening-U.S.A. — come learn how to get involved!
This event is part of A More Perfect Union and is organized by Skidmore College Model European Union club. The Role of Dialogue in a Dividing World is free and open to the public.
