Project Description

Country: USA

Location: Fort Collins, Colorado

Total Budget: $18,000

Area of Focus: Peace and conflict prevention/resolution

Activity Type: Peace: General

Summary: National speakers brought to Colorado State University, Ft. Collins, Colorado for peace initiative

Ft. Collins Rotary clubs intend to bring (2) nationally recognized speakers to CSU in Ft. Collins to do a presentation regarding reconciliation.

Specifically Daryl Davis and Christian Piccolini.

Daryl is the subject in the documentary " Accidental Courtesy" who opens discussion with KKK members to create a dialogue of open mindedness. He eventually allows up to 25 members to relinquish their membership in the organization.

Christian Piccolini - reformed Neo Nazi skin head, author of "Life after Hate". speaks of his journey out of the organization.

Our goal is to show that through open discussion and dialogue, ideas can change. Allow an opportunity for both of these individuals to demonstrate this by being at CSU in person.

Addendum to Project Description (added after the project was signed)

The presentation has been revised to just one speaker, Daryl Davis, for this event. Hope to do more Key Speaker events in the future. Revised Budget has been uploaded.
