Community Conversations About Important Topics
Issues That Matter panel discussions cover a variety of viewpoints with the intention of helping the audience come to their own conclusions about the issue at hand. The format is a moderated informative discussion.
In 2013, we are focusing on public safety and health issues. In May, we covered the hot topic of gun violence. September's forums will explore the causes and effects of bullying, and what we can do to stop it.
Each of these forums will be moderated by Chris Jury of the Snohomish County Health and Safety Network. Jury's work focuses on substance abuse and violence reduction. In 2012, he organized 10 separate community discussions with young people around the topic of bullying.
