Civility Dialogues | Accountability and Reconciliation - Where do we go from here?

Thursday, February 11, 2021 | 11:45am-1:00pm

Register at: bit.ly/dialogue_accountability

When considering many recent events culminating in the incident at the Capitol on January 6, 2021, what does accountability and reconciliation begin to look like? How does peace in a post-conflict society balance the need to hold perpetrators of violence accountable for their acts and achieve justice for victims and reconciliation between communities? What is our role? Participate in a discussion to uncover some possible answers. CSUSM registration is required.

Civility Dialogues are held monthly as a space to practice civil discourse while discussing current events and topics. Hosted by the Cross-Cultural Center, Dialogues are a compliment to the Civility Cafés where skills are developed and learned.

Join Dr. Uy-Tioco for a dialogue on Civility in the Digital Space.  

Social media is everywhere these days filled with likes, follows and sometimes even comments. What does civility look like in this digital space? Do you avoid certain topics or enjoy sharing your opinions? How do those interactions impact others outside of social media? No matter our amount of usage these questions are worth exploring. CSUSM registration is required.

Thursday, April 1, 2021 | 11:45am-1:00pm

Register at: bit.ly/dialogue_speech

Let’s talk about one of the most iconic and frequently cited amendments - the First Amendment and freedom of speech. What is or is not free speech? Should limits exist despite what the law may allow? Just because one can express speech, does that mean one should? How does it affect others on campus or more importantly society? Share your opinions and ideas with each other at this dialogue. CSUSM registration is required.
