Going Towards the Heat: Speaking Across Difference, June 10
 We are so excited to showcase our restorative justice and community-building work through the seminar, Going Towards the Heat: Speaking Across Difference, on June 10 from 6:30pm-8:30pm at the Theresa Lang Community and Student Center (55 West 13th Street)! New York Peace Institute was invited by the Vera List Center for Art and Politics at The New School to partner on a year-long public seminar series dedicated to Freedom of Speech. The sixth of these seminars, Going Towards the Heat, will be led by New York Peace Institute Circle Keepers, who will guide participants in a community-building circle practice where each circle will examine a facet of the theme, Freedom of Speech. This event, which will be a fantastic opportunity to participate in and observe the use of circles to discuss a difficult and timely topic, is free and open to the public. Registration is strongly suggested and you can register here.
