Event Description: “The Citizenship panel follows the Gender Equality panel, and takes a slightly different format, encouraging full engagement of everyone in the room and avoiding (the perception of) hierarchy between panelists and audience. We will give a brief introduction to each panelist, facilitate a 30-minute discussion with panelists, then invite others in the room to contribute to the discussion for the remaining 50 minutes. The questions framing this discussion are: What does it mean to be a citizen? What are citizens' rights? What are citizens duties? How do we become active citizens? Panelists: Shawn-Gabrielle Gomez (UB Media/Journalism grad), Niambi Hall-Campbell (UB lecturer, Psychology), Knijah Knowles (Law) and Ava Turnquest (Journalist). See you there!!!”Read more: The NAGB-Facebook and The NAGB
