Speakers with ties to Myanmar will discuss current crisis April 8
“Voices of Myanmar,” a Zoom conversation about contemporary events taking place in Myanmar, will be held from 6:30 to 7:45 p.m. Thursday, April 8, by Ripon College. The event is co-sponsored by the Center for Diversity and Inclusion and the Center for Politics and the People.
Free registration may be made at ripon.edu/voices.
Participants with first-hand experience about the issues will include current Ripon College students and alumni from Myanmar who will be sharing their personal reflections on the current crisis.
One of the speakers will be a person who has collaborated with a nonprofit organization that provides news and information about the activities going on in Myanmar. He will provide historical context to the recent crisis as well as some insights into what is happening on the ground now.
Because of security concerns for themselves and families in Myanmar, the participants will not be named.
The discussion will be moderated by Paul Jeffries, associate professor and chair of the Department of Philosophy and Religion.
Maria Mendoza-Bautista, director of the Center for Diversity and Inclusion, and Brian Smith, co-director of the Center for Politics and the People, will moderate the question-and-answer period.
