DCCE Civic Thursday: Can People Change? How much punishment is enough? What is Restorative Justice, and is it useful?
On November 29th, DCCE, along with this year’s Civic Engagement Studios, hosted its second Civic Thursday of this semester. The event was very well attended with students, faculty and staff from Duke as well as a wide range of community members and activists from Durham and beyond.
Stay tuned for Lynden’s column about the event, which will be published in the Chapel Hill/News and Observer/Durham News on February 12.
As part of the new project None of the Above, Hidden Voices will be working with Blue Ribbon Mentor-Advocate on Seeking the Self, an arts-based program designed to promote positive racial identity development and academic success for middle school students.
One out of 4 girls and 1 out of 6 boys will be sexually abused before the age of 18. More than 95% of child sexual abuse is committed by a family member or person the child knows and trusts. The numbers are simple. Incest is one of the most common forms of child sexual abuse. Hidden Voices invites men and women to share their experiences in order to change those numbers for our communities.
This new Hidden Voices project is a community-based project highlighting
stories from students, parents, teachers, and administrators affected
by the increase in long-term suspensions and attrition.
Listen to Leoneda Inge’s story Pauli Murray: Before Her Time on WUNC, featuring To Buy the Sun.
“Bravo! Saturday evening’s production was incredible. I loved everything I saw, heard, felt. I have read most books by and about Pauli, so I did not come ignorant of this amazing woman. But your portrayal, the fabulous acting of those two stars, the script, the effects are all well done: inspiring and so deserving of this local wonder-woman so far ahead of her time. Thank you.”
