Event Description:

Where do you stand? Reveal your convictions by where you stand in the room, and join our kinetic conversation on the power of persuasion, empathy, and compassion.
Robert F. Kennedy’s speech in Indianapolis the night Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was murdered implores us to use the power of compassion to find understanding. This deeply participatory event illustrates the power of words and conversation to persuade and build empathy for others. Starting with the ideas of compassion and empathy that emerge from Kennedy’s 1968 speech, participants will be asked to physically stand their position around complicated questions and then potentially—and physically—shift their position as new perspectives are shared.

Walk-ins welcome, but RSVPs encouraged by Nov. 5.

Presented by Indiana Historical Society; Kennedy King Memorial Initiative; CFI School #27; Desmond Tutu Center for Peace, Reconciliation, and Global Justice; and IUPUI Office of Intercultural Literacy, Capacity & Engagement.
