Talking Politics

Continuing the Conversation

TALKING POLITICS stimulates and supports political and personal conversations on the BHCC campus that raise critical consciousness and inspire community engagement in relation to significant contemporary topics.

In this semester's Talking Politics series, we explore the concept of CROSSING BORDERS through the perspectives of immigrants, refugees, and asylum seekers. Participants will SEE and interact with exhibits that help them to educate themselves about the topic; TALK to each other in thoughtful facilitated discussions; and take meaningful ACTION on their convictions in collaboration with community partners.
