A short course and practicum on Equity & Justice
October 8, 2020 - October 29, 2020Free
The work of The Foresight Lab in forging peace & reconciliation outcomes, and guiding the transformation of municipal police departments through the craft of diplomacy is deep and broad. Their work in this domain directly contributes to their Vision of The Regenerative Economy: An engine driving consistent and inspiring, and measurable, gains in social, economic, and ecological well-being. This pioneering effort has led to successful social justice interventions in Ferguson, MO, Charleston, SC, Philadelphia, PA, Atlanta, GA, and Baltimore, MD, among many other communities.
