F.O.R.C.E. Video Series (Foundations of Responsible Civic Engagement)
The Women4Change Indiana (W4CI) Civic Education Committee has created a series of educational sessions and several resources designed to address this crisis. “Civics, Civility, and Consensus” are hosted conversations that increase civil dialogue through a constructive process that is unifying rather than divisive. In addition to these facilitated groups and written materials the Committee supported the development of “Foundations of Responsible Civic Engagement” (FORCE) videos based on the Constitution and Sheila Suess Kennedy’s book “Talking Politics: What You Need to Know before Opening Your Mouth.”
We Believe . . .
We are shaped by the places we come from and shape those places in turn.
We believe in the power of the arts, humanities, and religion to strengthen and build community, foster deeper connections, and heal the world around us. Taking a people-centered approach, we invest time into building authentic relationships and co-create programming and capacity-building opportunities that address and reflect community needs and values. Housed in the IU School of Liberal Arts at IUPUI, Spirit & Place is a self-funded, radically unique platform based on an ethos of fairness, hospitality, and equity.
Learn more about our beliefs and values on our “Who We Are” page.
