Ongoing mass violence in the U.S. is raising concerns about gun control, mental illness and how to create more peaceful communities. Come join us for this presentation and discussion forum on Rene Girard’s ground-breaking theory on societal violence. We will introduce Girard’s work and discuss ways in which empowering voices of marginalized populations and increasing community engagement leads to a more peaceful and resilient society.
