Safety and Justice Discussion
How can communities reduce violence?
After falling steadily for decades, the rate of violent crime in the United States rose again in 2015 and 2016. Interactions between citizens and police too often end in violence. People are increasingly worried about safety in their communities.
Many Americans are concerned that something is going on with violence in communities, law enforcement, and race that is undermining the national ideals of safety and justice for all.
ASUN and the Center for Student Engagement have partnered with Dr. Amy Pason and the UNR Communication Studies department to create a space focused on important national topics. These conversations will be facilitated with the use of National Issues Forms guides around topics that students selected in the Spring 2018 Campus wide Civic Engagement Survey. Over 4000 students responded to this survey and expressed a desire to learn more about issues and to be a part of the conversation.
A deliberative conversation is a process that promotes civil & productive dialogue that moves us toward understanding values and identifying potential common ground. This is not a debate. Rather, it is a facilitated process that allows us to consider options together, explore our concerns, and decide what is important to our community.
Join us in these respectful deliberative conversations about real issues impacting our world.
We have only 200 spots and you can pick up your ticket at the ASUN Center for Student Engagement located on the 3rd Floor of The Joe.
