CLI AND KETTERING FOUNDATION KICK OFF "RACE & VIOLENCE" STUDY IN OHIO
Civic Life International and the Charles F. Kettering Foundation have entered into a learning agreement to focus on how citizens are engaging the in the Dayton area on the issue of race and violence.
This work will consist of public engagement processes involving dialogue and deliberation; learning from reflective journals, facilitator reports, and participant interviews, including quotes describing participant’s experiences, so that other communities across the country can learn from their personal experiences as they attempt to improve race relations and reduce violence in their communities.
Along with the online series, Civic Life International will observe, evaluate and report on:
- How participants approach the issues at the forum
- The challenges in connecting to the public
- How did participants avoid simply talking to themselves and dimensions that emerged, outside of the original framing of issues
- The usefulness of media tool and story telling techniques in creating
space for deliberating
