The Arizona Daily Sun shows Philosophy in the Public Interest helps citizens identify key values in issues of community concern, you can read the article here.

Philosophy in the Public Interest creates opportunities for guided community conversations about topics as timeless as friendship and as pressing as U.S. immigration policy. These programs create opportunities to gather together, listen with care, speak thoughtfully and respectfully, and learn more about our world, about each other, and about ourselves. The mission of Philosophy in the Public Interest is to create opportunities for deliberation and reflection that benefit the people and communities of northern Arizona.  

PPI has been named by the American Philosophical Association and the Philosophy Document Center as the 2013 winner of Excellence and Innovation in Philosophy Programs award.
