"The Role of Civil Society in Times of Civil Unrest" Panel Discussion
As we approach July 4th, the holiday that commemorates the United States of America’s independence from Great Britain, three leading civic organizations in Philadelphia come together to discuss the importance of civil society—that “third sector,” distinct from government and business. What is the role of civil society in times of civil unrest? Do civic organizations have a deliberative role in peace-building and conflict resolution? And, if so, to what extent? How can these organizations work to bring people together to not only have the hard conversations, but also commit to the often harder act of listening?
Join a virtual conversation with R. Scott Stephenson, the Museum's President & CEO; Ivan Henderson, Vice President of Programming of the African American Museum in Philadelphia; and Craig Snyder, President & CEO of the World Affairs Council of Philadelphia. This event is free with advanced registration hosted on GoToWebinar by World Affairs Council of Philadelphia.
