Deliberative Dialogue on Economic Opportunity in Monroe County

Back to all events

11:45 am - 01:00 pm

The Democracy Commitment at MCC will hold a campus-wide deliberative dialogue on economic opportunity in Monroe County on April 19 from 1145 am-1 pm in the Forum on the Brighton Campus.

Deliberative dialogues are unique opportunities for collaborative thinking about pressing public issues. Because each dialogue takes the form of deliberation, attendees drive the conversation in small groups facilitated by trained moderators. Deliberation is unlike panel discussions or debates. It is highly participatory, egalitarian, and non-adversarial. The foundation of each dialogue is an issue guide. These guides offer an opportunity to explore an issue critically and discuss alternative action steps while keeping our values at the center of the conversation. If you would like an advance copy of an issue guide or have questions, please email Joe Scanlon (
