About the Event

This program is for all curious members of society who are eager for civil peer-to-peer discussion but are concerned with the lack of such conversation in our busy everyday lives. Every second Tuesday of the month, the Kardashian-Free Conversation Club offers an open forum for you and your peers to talk through topics that range from automation’s effects on the job market to climate change.

Here’s how it works: Before the event, members elect a single news topic to focus on. When a topic is chosen, the moderators — Charles, Miri and James — will send out relevant materials, including podcasts, news articles, short videos and an easy-to-read fact sheet with the bare necessities. So, even if you are unfamiliar with the topic, you can quickly be brought up to speed and join the conversation. The goal is to have an informal but informative discussion where anyone can speak and everyone will listen. Bring your curiosity, your ideas and the desire to talk about anything but the Kardashians.

The conversation will be on the topic of the global refugee/migrant crisis. Discussion resources will be sent out to participants a week before the conversation.
