Protest Movements
The Sanctuary Campus Movement, the 'Defend Science' Movement, the Feminist Pro-Choice Movement, the Anti-Islamophobia Movement, the LGBTQ Movement, #MeToo, and #BlackLivesMatter. These are just a few of the protest movements that have made the news in recent years. What makes them effective? What makes it difficult for them to achieve their objectives? Which of these (and others that will be mentioned during the discussion) are most likely to be successful? Which are most likely to fail?

    What we're about

    Given a moment's thought, most of us can almost certainly think of questions for which we've not yet discovered a fully satisfying answer. Most of us can identify significant issues that have no obvious resolution. Join us as we consider a variety of relevant topics in an atmosphere that facilitates an exchange of ideas ... the sharing of alternative points of view. If you think you MIGHT have an answer worth considering, come share it with us. If you KNOW you have THE one and only answer, this might not be the group for you. The "With an Open Mind" Discussion Group uses a "moderated" discussion format. The discussion leader will keep the discussion focused and encourage adherence to established ground rules that give EVERY participant the opportunity to share his or her thoughts in a non-confrontational manner. No advance preparation is required. No political or religious perspective is assumed or excluded. The expectation is that all who participate will, during the course of the discussion, further develop their own, personal views through publically voicing their current thinking and respectfully listening to the thoughts of others.
