Fall Dialogue Day
The Role and Vitality of Fair Elections to a Functioning Democracy
On October 30th, CSJ held a discussion event featuring New York Assemblywoman Latrice Walker and Government Affairs and Labor Professional Tara Martin. It also featured an extremely comprehensive overview of voting rights in the United States by CSJ Vice President Heidi Simpson.
The event reflected on the development of election law and the legacy of voter suppression in the United States. We also focused on the legal challenges that we face today.
Effectively and Ethically Facilitating Dialogue
On September 18th, CSJ held a Moderator Workshop for fellow students interested in facilitating dialogue and hosting panels throughout the rest of the semester.
Focus was on facilitating discussion in ways that encourage inclusivity, keeping discussions on track, and intervening when necessary.
