The goal of the No Evil Project is to help people talk about labels and stereotypes (and take silly photos). Seeing the exhibits and being part of the project does that, and now we're taking it to the next level. On Wednesday, April 6th, Fisher College will be hosting a full day of No Evil Project activities, including the first No Evil Panel Discussion.
Here's the schedule:
10:00am - 12:15pm Photo Session 1, Alumni Hall
12:30pm - 2:00pm Panel Discussion, Alumni Hall Stage
2:00pm - 4:00pm Photo Session 2, Alumni Hall
4:00pm - 5:00pm Student Discussion, TRR
The panel discussion will be focused on learning about differences and challenging preconceived notions and stereotypes and will include representatives of the Muslim, LGBT, race, and disability communities. Come and ask questions! It will be moderated by Chris Shine of Boston radio station Magic 106.7. It is free and open to the public but requires registration.
