Everybody experiences far more than he understands. Yet it is experience, rather than understanding, that influences behavior.
Preventing Violent Extremism
How do extremist discourses threaten democracy and what can people do about it?
In this session, we consider how white nationalist ideology is expressed online in ways that people may not, at first, recognize as dangerous and discuss ways to balance the need for public safety with the rights of free expression.

Courageous Conversations are lively facilitated discussions where we activate critical thinking, listening, and self-expression skills by talking about social media, news stories, memes, social influencers, and more. We are thrilled to be partnering with Cortico, a social media listening platform that brings people together for small-group conversations around their lived experiences. Through a powerful combination of AI and human listening, we aim to surface community voices into public dialogue that showcases and strengthens media literacy competencies essential for citizenship.
