A conversation about Russia's Worldview, free at SCC Thursday evening

Wednesday, October 23, 2013

Derek Norberg, Executive Director
Russian-American Pacific Partnership

The second in the series of conversation about the worldview of people in other countries will take place this Thursday, October 24, at 7pm on the Shoreline College campus, in PUB 9208, when the subject will be the worldview of Russia.

The premise of these discussions is that the world is increasingly shaped by people and governments with different experiences, facing different circumstances, and holding different ideas than our own about modernity, democracy, and security, among other ideas.

Guest speaker will be Derek Norberg, Executive Director, Russian American Pacific Partnership (RAPP), who has more than 20 years of experience working with and living in Russia. The Consul-General of the Russian Federation in Seattle has been invited to participate but as of this date has not accepted our invitation.  

These events are open to the public and FREE. Additional details on both events can be found here.

Presented by the Global Affairs Center at Shoreline Community College.

Is RAPP making a stance against the Russian anti-LGBTQ so called propaganda laws that are targetting LGBTQ Russians, taking away their children and promoting rogue police and neo hate groups of kidnapping and assaulting LGBTQ youth? How can the consul general justify this outright human rights violation? If RAPP is not taking a stand against these abuses, how can they justify that?
