Day of Dialogue XVII: Conflict, Climate, and the Crisis of Forced Migration

Through presentations, panels, and workshops, the Hofstra community will examine the dramatic realities of people around the world who are being forced to move because of war and conflict or the growing threat of climate change. These crises and vulnerabilities lead to many forms of exploitation, including the formidable increase in human trafficking. The Day of Dialogue events will examine the connections between war and conflict, environmental catastrophe, and the impact on people who are displaced, vulnerable, and unprotected. It will also explore ways in which these challenges can be addressed through awareness and collective action. Featured speakers include William D. Hartung, director of the Arms and Security Project at the Center for International Policy; New York State Senator Jessica Ramos (District 13); Susan Gottehrer, executive director, New York Civil Liberties Union - Nassau Chapter; activist Sister Mary Beth Moore; and Dr. Ron Daniels, president of the Institute of the Black World 21st Century.

This all-day annual event presented by Hofstra's Center for Civic Engagement serves as an important forum for community engagement and participation. Students, faculty and community members are welcome.
